Arthur “Weegee” Fellig
1920s NYC Street Photos

In the early 20s, a photographer in NYC had the idea to get his own police scanner so that whenever the NYPD broadcasted a crime scene he would be there, camera in hand. His name was Arthur Fellig, born in 1899, and he became known as “Weegee” on the NYC streets, known for his ability to capture the dark side of the city, and recognized as one of the first tabloid photographers. His photos are an amazing historical record of a city that has seen so much violence and poverty throughout the years. The myth of New York City has always amazed me – considering itself the center of the free world, when so many people have been slaughtered on its streets. Check out some of Weegee’s photos below…
