Top 2 photos by Derek Berg

Last Wednesday evening, Village Preservation unveiled a plaque honoring acclaimed American photographer and painter Saul Leiter at 111 E. 10th St. between Second Avenue and Third Avenue, where he lived and worked from 1952 to his death in 2013

Speakers included critic and curator Vince Aletti, a longtime East Village resident who is the former art editor and photography critic for The Village Voice, photo exhibition reviewer for The New Yorker, and author of "A History of Photography in Fashion Magazines" (2019). (You can read a recent interview with him at Vanity Fair here.)
