Times Square in 1953 was all Hollywood noir; seedy cinemas, neon lights, late night entertainment and Harold Feinstein. He loved taking night shots in this place that never slept. This particular photograph was taken right before being shipped off to Korea as a draftee.

When he arrived back from the war just a year later, he would become one of the first inhabitants of the legendary Jazz Loft at 821 Sixth Avenue.

Later he brought in his good friend and collaborator, W. Eugene Smith, who jerry-rigged the building to record the sessions of Thelonious Monk, Zoot Sims and other greats. This photo seems like a harbinger to that era. It has jazz written all over it.

You can almost hear the saxaphone.
