Damiani : Susan Meiselas : Tar Beach


The book has the crazy charm of nostalgic diaries. It’s called Tar Beach. It is signed Susan Meiselas.

She didn’t take any of the photos. She compiled the images and texts.

Tar Beach is a fond memory of the rooftops of Little Italy in the 1970s and its people.

There is a very nice preface by Martin Scorcese which ends with:

And what was once Little Italy is now a few blocks of restaurants, shops and cafes, through which tour groups are led.

And I wonder . . . do people still go up to the roof? And if they do, what do they see ?

Because we saw heaven.

Martin Scorcese
