March 7, 2005 - New Yorker

Lisa Kereszi

These color photographs of a recent New York City mostly depict a place that is just out of reach. A chalkboard from an abandoned classroom on Governors Island still has the teacher’s name neatly printed across the slate. Other images conjure up the same fractured, seedy past, from the Show World sign to Coney Island’s Wonder Wheel glowing, in double, against a night sky. Also on view is the ethereal début solo show by the talented Jodie Vicenta Jacobson. Through March 26. (Richardson, 535 W. 22nd St. 646-230-9610.)
