For this New Year’s episode, we’re going to New York City’s Times Square, but not the Times Square you’re used to seeing when the ball drops. In The Gods of Times Square, a 1994 documentary by photographer Richard Sandler and StoryCorps founder Dave Isay, we’ll visit a Times Square that was grittier and dirtier than it is now, and meet the street preachers who made it their pulpit.

See more of Sandler’s work on his websiteInstagram, and Facebook.

Released December 26, 2017.
