Walk with Weegee

The New York Times Arts section on Friday June 20th includes the Weekend Explorer by John Strausbaugh with an excellent piece on Weegee and a guide to visiting the places in the Bowery where Weegee performed his documentary magic. In addition to visiting the International Center of Photography, which currently houses some 20,000 of Weegee's photographs, Noir lovers can visit such places as Weegee's last apartment building at 451 West 47th Street in Hell's Kitchen. This building was owned by the photographer's companion Wilma Wilcox, whose trunk filled with undiscovered Weegee documents and photos was recently purchased at a yard sale in Kentucky.
