Last week New York lost a treasure.  Bill was the fashion and society photographer for the New York Times for nearly 40 years.  In fact, he was designated by the City of New York in 2009 as a living landmark.  He was noticeable around town for riding his rickety old bike with his camera always around his neck and for his basic blue Parisian work smock.

We will sorely miss you Bill.

Here is his obituary in the Times.     Bill Cunningham obituary
