“The Bowery at Night”

June 25, 2008

Painter William Louis Sonntag, Jr. depicted the Bowery in 1895, as it was transitioning from New York’s prime theater district to the 20th century’s fabled boulevard of skid row bars and bummy hotels. This rich, stunning painting is part of the Museum of the City of New York’s collection. Note the Third Avenue El on the left.
