Here - spanning the last eighty years of the twentieth century - are images that capture the heart and guts of the city: packed sports stadiums, hushed morgues, glamorous nightclubs, treacherous rooftops, and mean streets. From the famous 1927 photo of the electrocution of Ruth Snyder - who had conspired with her corset-salesman lover to murder her husband - taken with a hidden camera to such icons of the celebrity-crazed present as Kate Moss and Johnny Depp, pictured together at an exclusive party, the News knows what we want to see and produces photographs that give shape to our fantasies of life in the world's greatest metropolis.
