No matter how heavily scheduled a day might be, the city’s Broadway and film starlets, opera singers, and novelists paused to take time for their four-legged friends. For City Dogs, LIFE magazine contract photographer Nina Leen created a series of portraits of illustrious Manhattanite artists gallivanting throughout their city with their canine companions, capturing the ineffable ways in which dogs both large and small brighten even the most vital of neighborhoods. City Dogs will be on view at Daniel Cooney Fine Art beginning March 26, 2015.
