Black and White Street Photographs of New York City by Matt Weber

December 1, 2011

Welcome to my gallery featuring 4 Decades of New York Street Photographs

I want you to enjoy my galleries of street photography without getting lost. There are many different galleries with subjects you can peruse. If you you are interested in Subway photos there are plenty of images which show the NYC subway system in all its "splendor" Maybe you want to see some pictures of Harlem when it was still Harlem.You can leave comments if you feel so inclined. Most images can be purchased as signed  ptints for your collection.  "The Urban Prisoner" (Shown on the left) is my first monograph, published in 2004 by Sanctuary Books. Introduction by Ben Lifson. There are still some copies available for purchase. Please inquire about licensing my images for documentary use. Blu-Ray quality files (or 4K) are available for any project you may be working on…Thanks!

West 63d Street (Thelonious Sphere Monk Circle) 1985

This dead end block is one of the last traces of an entire neighborhood which was razed to make way for Lincoln Center. West Side Story was filmed in “San Juan Hill” and also east Harlem, but this was where the story was suppose to take place. Monk lived in a tenement here for many years, and the city finally renamed this block after him…
