Thompson, Thames and Hudson 1984. The photographer's son-in-law, Peter McGrath writes (28th October 2005), "The urban picture of his you show is coincidentally just a few blocks from where we (his daughter, 3 grandchildren and I) live in the far West Village in Manhattan. That photo is now our family computer desktop wallpaper... I have always described Jerry as a story teller in regards his pictures. He was really quite a great one in person as well."
