"From the anonymous masses in Grand Central Terminal to Orthodox Jews on the subway, The Eyes of the City is a tribute to the unrecognized ghosts of New York's past." -i-D

"From the pages of his new book, you can almost hear the rattle of the subway cars, the tap of high heels on concrete and the commotion of midtown rush hour. But if the city is the theatre, it's the people who take center stage." -TIME Lightbox "In the book, Sandler takes us on a wild and wandering journey through a New York (and briefly Boston as well) that hardly exists anymore, staring, prying and eavesdropping along the way. We wander through the concrete and steel canyons with him, noting the characters that punctuate the masses teeming by on sidewalks; we descend underground to the subway and meet more characters playing out the drama of living in one of the world's most famous, gritty and raw cities." -Washington Post "It's a dramatic appraisal of street photography, yet Sandler's images are so frequently more so. A picture is worth a thousand words, and all that. Sandler's street life chronicles -- from the day he was given his Leica, to just weeks before 9/11 -- are brought together; drama rarely far, New York's strange souls laid bare." -WeHeart AS SEEN IN: AI-AP, British Journal of Photography, Business Insider, The Atlantic / City Lab, Creative Boom, Feature Shoot,, Huck Magazine, Hyperallergic, Juxtapoz, LensCulture, VICE, Wallpaper*, and Yahoo!
