Before cell phones documented nearly every aspect of daily life, street photographers captured the humble, the mundane, and the ordinary. Flushing resident Frank Larson documented New York in the 1950s. When we view Larson’s work 60 years later, we still see ourselves, even if New York has changed around us. 

The exhibit will be on view at the Flushing Town Hall from Sunday, June 25 through Sunday, August 6. The gallery is open on Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 5:00 p.m.

Join Kingsland Homestead for a featured lecture on Wednesday, June 28, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.?
