Overview

"A great photograph often reveals the city to the people who share its life." Thus does Pete Hamill introduce this marvelous collection of photographs from the unparalleled archives of the New York Daily News. This American newspaper, the first to truly understand and use the power of photography, has created an unforgettable and indelible portrait of New York and New Yorkers in pictures. Here -- spanning the last eighty years of the twentieth century -- are images that capture the heart and guts of the city: packed sports stadiums, hushed morgues, glamorous night-clubs, treacherous rooftops, and mean streets. From the famous 1927 photo of the electrocution of Ruth Snyder -- who had conspired with her corset-salesman lover to murder her husband -- taken with a hidden camera to such icons of the celebrity-crazed present as Kate Moss and Johnny Depp, pictured together at an exclusive party, the News knows what we want to see and produces photographs that give shape to our fantasies of life in the world's greatest metropolis. Including a vivid text by best-selling author Pete Hamill, who has tabloid journalism in his blood, New York Exposed is an incomparable visual record of the city over eight decades -- full of surprise, drama, and sheer unalloyed fun.

    A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

    That saying can so simply describe this book of photography. The pictures portray a century of New York. Each picture is so carefully chosen to show what New York truly is. This book is beautifully designed to bring emotions of warmth and truth to your heart. I highly recommend buying this book!
