A summer in the Harlem of the 70s

Jack Garofalo (1923-2004), one of the leading photographers for Paris Match magazine, spent six weeks in Harlem, New York, in the summer of 1970. His images were the cover story for Match in October that year. Garofalo was sent on assignment to document the changes happening to the neighborhood after the 1960s. As the 1960s ended, many Harlemites were able to escape the crumbling, crime ridden neighborhood in search of better school systems, safer streets and more livable homes. Jack Garofalo‘s photographs documented the people who stayed. A snapshot in time we’ll never see again.
