Helen Levitt on the Leonard Lopate Show in 2001

Tuesday, December 11, 2001

Helen Levitt was a poet, with a camera. Over her long career, she is especially known for capturing random moments of children at play in the streets of New York -- moments that always seemed to be the perfect moments. A native of Bensonhurst, Helen Levitt died in her sleep in her home here in the city at the age of 95. You can hear an interview she did with Leonard Lopate from 2001.
