New York exposed: photographs from the Daily News
With these words, Pete Hamill introduces 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.

Including a keen 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.
