Parks Commissioner Gordon Davis hired eight temporarily out-of-work New York Times photographers to document the city’s parks. Here: Family salvages picnic table, unidentified Park, 1978.

Nina Leen, one of the first female photographers to work for Life, took pictures for the magazine from 1940 to 1972. In the mid-1940s, her essay, “City Dogs”, featured actors and artists with their pets on the streets of New York City. In late-March, Daniel Cooney Fine Art in New York City, is opening a solo exhibition of Leen’s work that features images from that essay and others.
