Author and photographer Lisa Kahane spent a good deal of the 1980s documenting the South Bronx, which at the time was plagued by arson, disease, poor economic planning and displacement. She captured "the human side of urban decay" as the neighborhood fell apart and tried to pick itself back up. She now shows it all, decades later, in her book Do Not Give Way To Evil: Photographs of the South Bronx, 1979-1987 -- here are some images from it.
