Weegee : King of the Nighttime Streets


Weegee (Ascher Fellig, 1899-1968), a New York City photographer, “was the Dante of New York’s nighttime demimonde. His photos, of swells and speakeasies, crime and crowds, or perps and play, are a singular record of New York City in the 1930s and ’40s.”    -David Gonzalez, The New York Times, September 28, 2017
