Gramercy Park Neighbor Renowned Photographer Lois Conner featured on New York Times LENS Blog
A few years ago we asked Gramercy Park neighbor Lois Conner to photograph Gramercy Park.  Click here to view a slideshow of a few of her beautiful photographs taken last spring.

The New York Times LENS Blog article below explores Conner's background and her work in China, where she has photographed for the past three decades.   Her new book "Beijing: Contemporary and Imperial" "Beijing: Contemporary and Imperial"  "offers up cinematic scenes of tangled trees and imperial gardens juxtaposed against stark, modern architecture."
