A unique and largely unseen picture of the excitement of New York in the 1970s

Preface by Yoko Ono, foreword by P.J. O'Rourke

New York in the 70s is a personal collection of photographs documenting an exciting chapter in New York's history-and a remarkable body of work produced by photographer Allan Tannenbaum while he was a photo editor of the SoHo Weekly News in Manhattan. The photographs encompass many aspects of New York life while capturing the heady exuberance of the era-from SoHo and the art world to the city's politics and society. By photographing everything from street gangs to disco divas, from homeless to Hollywood stars, Tannenbaum had assembled a personal diary of his journey as a photojournalist and raconteur through a strange and exotic era of New York life.
