ABOUT:                Some of New York’s most iconic cultural moments over the past 50 years have been captured by George Kalinsky. Serving as Madison Square Garden’s official photographer, Kalinsky has turned truly memorable moments―sporting events, legendary performances, and notable occasions―into lasting images that have defined the city.

New York Through the Lens of George Kalinsky features more than 70 photographs from 1955 to 2017, including the following quintessential images:

  • John Lennon in his last live appearance in 1974;
  • Frank Sinatra crooning to an adoring crowd in 1975;
  • Pope John Paul II hoisting a seven-year-old child onto the Popemobile in
    Madison Square Garden in 1979;
  • Mets pitcher Jesse Orosco falling to his knees on the mound as the Mets won the 1986 World Series;
  • Patrick Ewing celebrating the New York Knicks winning the NBA Eastern Conference Championship on June 5, 1994; and
  • Sloane Stephens winning the 2017 US Open.

The exhibition is curated by Marilyn Satin Kushner, curator and head, Department of Prints, Photographs, and Architectural Collections.
