Olmsted Trees by Stanley Greenberg
Fundamental to renowned landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted's vision in his park designs was the key role of time. He had the ability to see a plot of land for what it was in the raw undeveloped state, as well as to visualize how his designs would translate several decades into the future after the trees and shrubs he planted had rooted and spread and integrated with the space.

Coney Island People 50 years by Harvey Stein
Widely celebrated New York street photographer Harvey Stein is known, in part, for his ability to notice the beautiful, mundane, quirky aspects of human nature and caught moments and in doing so, elevate the everyday to a space of wonder. Coney Island People 50 Years (Schiffer, July 26, 2022) traces Stein's love affair with Coney Island over time with a collection of 174 evocative black and white photographs spanning 1970 to 2020 that focus on the people who populate this legendary place. It's his third book about Coney. The first was published by W.W. Norton in 1998 and simply called Coney Island. The second, the acclaimed Coney Island 40 Years, was published in 2011, also by Schiffer. Twenty-three of Stein's favorite images from the 40 year book are included in the new work

Beach Lovers by Erica Reade
At a time in global history when connection with others has been tested from two years of separations and quarantining, Erica Reade's photographs resonate well beyond the beach atmosphere of the image settings. Her black and white photos are focused on intimacy and physical connections between couples at beaches in New York. She focused particularly on the Rockaways, Fort Tilden and Coney Island, and has called this project "an NYC summer love story." Expressions of love and sensuality are made visible in these nostalgic black and white photographs.

Station to Station by Ed Hotchkiss
The New York City subway system shuttles many of the over 8 million NYC residents from here, to there, and photographer Ed Hotchkiss journeyed on every line, criss-crossing the city and its boroughs, discovering and noticing. The subway cars gather and hold for a finite amount of time a seemingly random group of people, all with their own unique lives, hopes, and plans, and who each disperse and disappear upon exiting the train. This setting provides a unique opportunity to observe the vast array of humanity that signifies New York. These images reflect the value Ed saw in what he found.
