This exhibition highlights a work that the New York engineering firm Leonard S. Wegman & Co. commissioned in 1966 from John Veltri. Veltri was to photograph every building, parking area, and shaftway on West 37th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues, at the heart of Manhattan’s busy Garment District. The photographs Veltri made in connection with Wegman & Co.’s redevelopment proposal are significant as revealing evidence of an attitude to the city, representative of a specific time and place.
Veltri’s survey of West 37th Street, Manhattan is part of the CCA collection.
