NEW YORK (AP).- A new exhibition of photographs by Alfred Stieglitz offers a view of New York City at the turn of the 20th century through the eyes of one of the world’s most celebrated photographers. “Alfred Stieglitz New York” at the Seaport Museum New York features 39 vintage photographs, many shot from the windows of his midtown-Manhattan apartment and galleries. It opens on Wednesday and runs through Jan. 19, 2011. It is the first time these works are being shown together since 1932 when Stieglitz showed them at An American Place, a gallery he operated from 1929 until his death in 1946, said the exhibition curator Bonnie Yochelson. The photographs cover the periods from 1893 to 1916 and 1930 to 1935, contrasting Stieglitz’s images of Old New York with later images of the city as it emerged
