Time Capsule

The New York Press Photographers Association dates back to 1913 and its roots include the Press Photographers of New York. Then on April 17, 1915 a group of 58 News Photographers of the various news organizations in New York gathered at the Castle Cave Restaurant at 271 7th Ave., near 26th St and formed a fraternal organization where news photographers could meet on social occasions and exchange ideas and get to know one another better, instead of always meeting on the run at fires and breaking news stories. On this page we look back and show off the beginnings of the over 100 years of the NYPPA.
