Danny Lyon’s haunting photographs documenting the lone buildings, empty streets, and eventual destruction of nearly sixty acres of land below Canal Street in Manhattan in the 1960’s continues to hold relevance and interest today. Perhaps because urban development and gentrification remain prevalent forces in New York City, and even more so in the midst of a pandemic and time of social unrest that has largely been depicted through abandoned spaces, closed businesses, and battered storefronts.
Explore this iconic photo series further through a special conversation centered on the re-publication of Danny Lyon’s 1969 photobook, The Destruction of Lower Manhattan. Lyon will be joined by writer, editor, and curator Randy Kennedy for a discussion about the making of the book, the photographs, and its lasting relevance today.Buy tickets/get more info now
