Off her March exhibit at Deitch Projects comes Rosson Crow’s new book, Bowery Boys.

Via Buzzine: “Inspired by Luc Sante’s book Low Life, Crow decided to focus on downtown culture. To research the subject, she and several girls from the gallery roamed the city visiting restaurants, bars, and clubs. She spouted the names of many of New York’s iconic places she had read about, including The Mudd Club at 77 White Street, which closed down in 1982, the year she was born. “It probably wasn’t as exciting visually inside,” she said.

Until I actually thumb through the book, it’s uncertain what my reaction will be, but I like the premise although it’s a bit LA-ized from what I’ve seen.
