Crosstown reflects over five decades in the award-winning career of Helen Levitt. "Every one of these pictures is a piece of spontaneous theater Recognized as a modern master Levitt may well be the most celebrated and least known photographer of her time" (New York Times). "Levitt's marvelously serendipitous images of urban street theatre [are] at once suggestively narrative and as ephemeral as a passing glance" (Roth, 178).
