"Diane Arbus in Manhattan" is Hilton Als' paean to the great photographer and the city that helped make her. Born in New York in 1923, the artist left an invaluable record not only of a city defined by difference, but a rough and tumble fairyland where fantastic figures lived real lives. In this piece Als discusses not only his relationship to Arbus' work, but a hitherto rarely examined exponent of it - Manhattan.
