Uniform Title:New York exposed :

With an introduction by best-selling author Pete Hamill, this collection of more than 300 photographs of New York life from the archives of the New York Daily News spans 1920 to 2001. Here, organized chronologically by decade, are images that capture the heart and guts of the big city: sports, crime, politics, night life and classic human interest. It's all here: crammed stadiums, hushed morgues, glamorous nightclubs, treacherous rooftops and mean streets.
