Since the mid-1930s, Levitt (1913-2009) has photographed life on the streets of NYC, capturing the pulse of the city at moments when sidewalk life becomes an urban portrait. Crosstown is the most comprehensive monograph devoted to this master photographer. In pictures of 1930s and 1940s Harlem, a color series completed in 1960, and black-and-white images from the 1980s and 1990s, the book reveals the changes in New York street culture as well as the evolution of Levitt's photographic eye. Included on Vince Aletti's list of Best Photo Books of 2001.
