Event Description:
"Jill Freedman: Street Cops"
Curator: Lisa Farrington
DATES:  September 13-October 26, 2012

In an era when the New York City Police Department (NYPD) has an entire arsenal of high-tech weapons and techniques to fight crime and terrorism, seeing Jill Freedman's gritty, in-your-face images of street cops on the job thirty years ago almost makes you wish for the good old days when it seemed easier to spot and take out the bad guys. After all, this was the period when Times Square was best known for its prostitutes, scam artists and porn palaces. This was the heyday of Alphabet City in the East Village, the junkie's back yard. This was the New York that Jill Freedman captures so vividly.
