Yet more B&W NYC (and Paris) photos for your enjoyment.

Louis Stettner: Atmospheric black and white photos of Paris and New York by Brooklyn-born photographer who now lives in France. Some are sexy, some amusing, some poignant. A series on Penn station in the 1950s is especially nice, and a big contrast to the candy colored Mad Men palette. Beware mispelled main url. via.

The main URL isn't misspelled, exactly -- it just calls him "Lou."

Sorry, I saw the s and thought it was the end of his first name, not the start of his last. Am moron.

Amazing photographs. Those (and pretty much any) photos of the old Penn Station just break my heart!

Great post, and I love the Penn Station shots too—wish I hadn't come to NYC too late to experience the place.

F'king fantastic images. Thank you so much.
I find this sad face oddly poignant.

Oh, MAN, this one's great too: Texans on Fifth Avenue, 1975.
