Hustle and Flow

It's 4:30 AM inside the Golden Q, a pool hall in Woodside Queens, New York City. I sit and talk with a man who goes by the name Cornbread. He speaks to me about Harlem in the 1950's, the music and the nightlife. To his right is Lefty, an 82 year old retired police detective who is whispering into the ear of a 17-year-old high school student.

Photographer Christopher LeMarca documents the fast-disappearing community of "underground pool hustlers."
