Catalogue Note

In 1966, a large part of Lower Manhattan faced a demolition job of staggering magnitude. More than 24 city blocks would be razed to allow for a wave of development that included an access ramp for the Brooklyn Bridge, the expansion of Pace University, and office buildings, shops and housing. Danny Lyon moved into a loft on Williams Street the same year, in the midst of an empty, abandoned neighborhood. 

His project to document the disappearance of the buildings of 19th-century mercantile New York resulted in this appealing photo-book showing New York as a ghost town.
