Larry Clark wrote "I got off the subway at 42nd Street...and I got my camera. And I've always loved 42nd Street. It's always been my favorite street in New York...There's that innocence there. A lot of the 42nd Street pictures are just that. I mean, some of the pictures of the kids when I first met them and they were looking at me with those come-on looks.... I thought that was so obvious, but nobody had a clue these kids were hustling."
