Jazz writer and photographer William P. Gottlieb spent plenty of time on “Swing Street,” that section of West Fifty-Second Street between Fifth and Sixth avenues in Manhattan where many jazz clubs were located in the ground floors of brownstones, so it was only natural that he go outside and shoot the street in its entirety.
