Amazing. From my man MC Shan...

This is a series of pictures from the ghettos of NY from 1965-1995. It shows all the desolation and drug abuse that was going on back in areas where even the cops were afraid to go. The photographer was a Dane who came to the US to teach, and ended up going on a vagabond tour to document the living conditions across the country. There's a link to the entire gallery, which includes DC and the deep south on the page someplace.

Link to the dudes book is here.
