On the Street….West Side Meatpacking District Then and Now, New York

Yesterday I bought the great book West Side Rendezvous by Katsu Naito at the Book Marc store here in L.A.

 

The book documents New York’s Meatpacking District in the early 90′s when it was still an outlaw area.  Actually the shot above (on Washington Street) would be just to the right of the photo below.  The change in just 15 to 20 years is so dramatic.   

This “young lady(?)” is standing right about where I was standing when I took the photo of the young lady above while she works at The Standard.   Yes, there was a time when transgender prostitutes walked the streets in New York in broad daylight.

 

If you love New York you have to get this book.  Not only is the sub-culture covered fascinating but the actual real drama  of the images are heartbreaking.
