FEATURES
Faces Forward

The story of a city is written in its faces. And in New York, more than in other American cities, you can read it, in all its amazing diversity, on every sidewalk, where the window-washer and the doorman rub elbows with the actress and the tycoon. In this issue, contributing photographer Frank W. Ockenfels 3, known for his honest, incisive celebrity portraiture, turned his camera on the people who make the city work. They're faces you'll recognize, even if you've never laid eyes on them. They're your neighbors.
