Baltrop captured the gay cruising spots and hookup culture that existed in New York City before the AIDS epidemic. Baltrop’s photographs not only captured human personalities, but also the aesthetics of the dilapidated piers. His life work is a snapshot of gay, African-American, and New York City history.
