In 2014, 269 people died in New York City traffic crashes. Twenty bicyclists died as a result of these crashes. Of those twenty, nine remain unidentified to the public and some have not been named at all. This book was made from photographs taken at the sites of each of these nine crashes.
The information used to create this project was sourced from the Mean Streets 2014 report1 by the WNYC Data News Team. Photographs by Liam Quigley. Edited by Daryl Meador and Liam Quigley, bound in an edition of nine by Daryl Meador.
