Sylvia Plachy: Goings On About Town

Photographs for The New Yorker

Foreword by Mark Singer. Afterword by Elisabeth Biondi.

Sylvia Plachy was the first photographer ever to be assigned to shoot the opening picture of the essential Goings On About Town section of The New Yorker. She did so for more than a year, in conjunction with the legendary magazine's front section redesign of 2005. From the Mermaid Parade on Coney Island to Forest Park in Queens, from backstage to center stage, in Goings On About Town, Plachy explores the city's dynamics from the inside out, revealing the vital, and, at times, wacky creativity that energizes New York City around the clock. In so doing, she presents hidden gems that most of us never have a chance to see up close--like Macy's New Jersey workshop for the annual Thanksgiving Day Parade. Plachy's humor and way of looking is particularly suited to such offbeat assignments. Almost entirely in color, this volume also includes some images that have never been published before. Joyful and idiosyncratic, Goings On About Town is quintessentially Plachy, and quintessentially New York.
