A few months ago I went to New York and I think when I wrote about it I mentioned that it's one of those cities that even though I had never been I felt like I had been there before. If you have opened a magazine, watched a movie, read a book, listened to a song chances are that at some point in your life you have seen a reference to the "best city in the world". An era of images that I have always associated with NY is the 60's... everything seemed so clean, vibrant, kicky and metropolitan. Yes, another false ideal that I blame on the movies. The photos by Charles Cushman do not do much to dissuade my silly notions and I find myself yet again wanting to jump into my pretend time machine.
