About This Series

"About ten years after I had completed the series on the Lower West Side Anne suggested I go back and see what had happened to the people I had photographed. If you go to the Lower West Side on a cold day the place seems deserted. But if you go there on a nice sunny day, everybody seems to be out on the street. It was just such a day that convinced us to go back and re-photograph the many individuals and families who continued to reside there. After many years of absence it was surprising how many people recognized us and greeted us with hugs and kisses." –Milton Rogovin
