Recommended by Rebecca (Gallery Manager): "Summer Serenade always makes me nostalgic for the New York of the 70s. Through this image, I can feel the heat and humidity that draws New Yorkers out of their apartments and onto the stoop to chat, play music, and enjoy the night air. It is a scene that reminds me of an era but is still timeless. Even when I've just visited New York, Mershimer's portrayal makes me want to go back."
