"My Moms was a good person. She cared, but she just couldn't hack us no more. She kept saying she gonna kill herself, too. The day she died, she told me that my father hit her, and I told her, That was good for you, for not cooking for him. And she left. I didn't know she took the pills, though. The next day, they told me she was dead."—PistolThis searing portrait of inner-city life takes us inside one of America's deadly urban battlefronts—the Puerto Rican neighborhood of Alphabet City on New York's Lower East Side. With unnerving clarity, Geoffrey Biddle shows us the people who live there, summoning their spirit against the brutalizing conditions of poverty, joblessness, drugs, crime, and violence. Capturing life in this ghetto on film and in words with rawness and compassion, he shows the human toll of impoverishment and neglect.In 1977 Geoffrey Biddle photographed the residents of Alphabet City for the first time. Ten years later, he returned to this same area and photographed many of the same people again, this time also interviewing them. Alphabet City is the result of those encounters.While the stories are unique, they coalesce into a single tale all the more jarring for the matter-of-fact tone in which it is told. There is Ariel, whose dreams of becoming a boxer were destroyed when he contracted AIDS. And Linda, raising three sons while sleeping in the street, hungry and drug-addicted. There are also tales of human resilience like Richard's, a defiant former gang member who now attends college. These stories belong not only to one New York neighborhood, but to urban ghettos across the United States.Framed by Miguel Algarín's compelling introduction and dramatized by the speakers' own testimony, Geoffrey Biddle's photographs are haunting portrayals of a ravaged community battling ineffectually against deprivation and betrayal. This book forces us to see faces and to hear voices that won't be easy to forget, and yet which in the end are not so different from our own.
  • I was actually born and raised on the LES from 1975 to approximately 2002. I think this book is actually a great reflection of that time period and what was going on in the community. The truth is that the 80s and early 90s were still a very hardcore time in the neighborhood. I think it is an honest reflection of the people and the culture for that period. According to the intro of the book the original pics were taken between 1977-1978. The interviews and the follow up photos were done in 1987. That's about 10 yrs apart. If you are looking for a book that shows what the LES looked like then compared to 2015 or later you will be disappointed. But as I said, it is a very honest account of that specific period.

  • Many interesting photos of the Lower East Side ... previously Puerto Rican area in NYC. If you cannot buy, check your library. The photos tell an interesting story.
