Jill Freedman’s Street Cops at CUNY’s John Jay College of Criminal Justice. Opening TOMORROW Thursday, September 13th from 6-8pm. Located at 899 10th Avenue (at 59th Street) in the President’s Gallery at Haaren Hall. See you there!
“In an era when the 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.”
