Image credit Danny Lyon, 88 Gold Street (detail), 1967, black-and-white photograph, dimensions variable. From the series “The Destruction of Lower Manhattan,” 1967. “The same year that Larry Fink photographed Black Mask on Wall Street,” Kusher writes, “Danny Lyon methodically captured with a view camera the vast demolition of Lower Manhattan, much of it coming down for the construction of the Twin Towers. Factories and warehouses to be replaced by finance, which gives literal shape to a significant transformation of the seventies: the death of American manufacturing.”
