Claremont Inn, Riverside Drive

Karl Struss American

Not on view

A member of the Photo-Secession, Struss was a student of Clarence White and a friend of Alfred Stieglitz. He made dozens of photographs of the city at dusk, delighting in the way things merged and were illuminated by strings of fine lights. This photograph, with its gleaming automobiles and electric lights, shows a popular Manhattan summertime restaurant housed in a Colonial-era home on Manhattan's Upper West Side.
