Meryl Meisler – New York PARADISE LOST Bushwick Era Disco

It was our pleasure to speak with our good friend Meryl Meisler once again, this time about her newest book New York PARADISE LOST Bushwick Era Disco.

Strand Books describes this book as “an intimate journey to the pandemonium and paradise of the 1970s through early 1990s New York City. Meryl documented a tumultuous time in NYC’s history – epidemics of arson, crime, crack, and AIDS, intensified by a paralyzing blackout, political and fiscal crisis…Her effervescent images are personal memoir – love letters filled with compassion and humor mixed with angst, kept secret for decades until she retired from teaching.”

Join Meryl and Bob as they talk about Meryl’s book and all the years of photography that led up to it.
