10. Photographs by Thomas Moore Showcase Range of Affordable Housing

The entrance to Affordable Housing: A New York Legacy features museum-commissioned photographs by Andrew Moore that showcase in photo form the diversity of affordable housing available in New York City. The color photographs show everything from 19th century philanthropic tenements, the familiar towers in the park, single family ranch homes in the Bronx, to recent inclusionary housing in Hunters Point South. Each photograph, curator Thomas Mellins says, “represents some kind of idea, or type or program that you then learn more about inside.”
