Call it what you want – the big apple, the city that never sleeps or just plain old New York. Here we have photos from two books that were published in the seventies and capture the street life of the city.

The pictures were taken from the books “The Pavements of New York” by Nicolai Canetti which was published in 1976 and “New York” a 1977 publication that featured photography by Bernard Hermann.
