Recorded from a 24th floor window on Broadway, Hudson River Landscapes maps the elevated terrain of Manhattan's Upper West Side, where laborers and layabouts, while displaced from the city beneath them, and framed by the river behind them, function like secret agents in an unscripted spy drama. And in this allegorical drama, like so many before it, we can infer the perilous trajectory of the story of civilization itself.
