Curious about the individuals shown carrying chimpanzees in Garry Winogrand's 1967 photo, Central Park Zoo, New York City. Tod Papageorge recounts how the photo was taken in this essay, but doesn't reveal what either he or Winogrand might have learned about the people and their clothed chimpanzees. Forever anonymous? Or written up in some piece I'm not finding?

I'm looking for ideas for interesting, off-the-beaten-path places to go and take photographs in New York or the surrounding areas.
