Some of New York’s most iconic cultural moments over the past 50 years have been captured by George Kalinsky. Serving as Madison Square Garden’s official photographer, Kalinsky has turned truly memorable moments―sporting events, legendary performances, and notable occasions―into lasting images that have defined the city. Among the quintessential photographs on view will be Pope John Paul II hoisting a seven-year-old child onto the Popemobile in Madison Square Garden, Bill Bradley celebrating a New York Knicks victory, Frank Sinatra crooning in 1975, and Jesse Orosco falling to his knees on the mound as the Mets won the 1986 World Series. Curated by Marilyn Satin Kushner, curator and head, Department of Prints, Photographs, and Architectural Collections.

New York Through the Lens of George Kalinsky is based on the book Legends by George Kalinsky, available at the NYHistory Store.
