The Observer paid half of Moore's plane fare to New York (which he'd already halved by taking publicity images for the airline). There was a daunting list of 20 portraits for the magazine, including the Secretary General of the United Nations, but Moore had his own plans, including 'baseball fans at a World Series match in Yankee Stadium and the street life of Times Square'.

This photograph was included in the David Moore 100 Photographs series that toured the State Library of NSW (titled David Moore 100 photographs) in late 2005. The exhibition then travelled to Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, in 2006, changing its title to David Moore A Vision, 1927-2003; and then to Bendigo Art Gallery (2006), Shepparton Art Gallery (2006), Albury Regional Art Gallery (2007), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2007), Wollongong City Gallery (2007), Mildura Arts Centre (2008), and finally to LaTrobe Regional Gallery (2008). A Limited Edition of the series was also produced.
