In the 1930s and 40s he was everywhere in Manhattan, showing up with his news camera at accidents and crime scenes as though he had consulted a Ouija board. Known as Weegee, Polish immigrant Arthur Fellig captured what he called the "Naked City" in hard-lit black and white photos of criminals and crash victims, society types and street kids, and though his view was often cynical, he could be tremendously sentimental about his subjects' hard lives. This fascinating guide takes viewers through eleven neighborhoods—from the Bowery to Midtown, the West Side to the East, with a little Brooklyn thrown in—showing exactly where each of the 265 captioned photos here was taken, on maps from both the 1940s and the 2010s.
