In the late 70s, Jill freedman followed and documented for two years the NYPD as they patrolled Manhattan’s Ninth and Midtown South Precincts. The result is a crude and gritty visual diary of New York during one of its wildest times, when the city was allegedly “broke” and drugs, crime, and homelessness were rampant. Freedman's piercing images capture the suspense and humor, her sharp ear translates the blunt street talk as well as the poetry. Shocking, sometimes funny and always true, Street Cops is a unique, intimate and penetrating vision of the street and the work that cops call a living.
