They Saved New York


Concept and Photography by Glenn Usdin; Written by Dan Potter

“They Saved New York” is a book project that captures a wide range of the firefighters that serve the New York Fire Department (FDNY). This large format photo book features evocative portraits and the personal story of the firefighters experience as FDNY members. 

They are stories that every firefighter in the world understands, and everyone who admires firefighters will appreciate.


“The entire person is uncanningly captured by Glenn Usdin. In this book, Glenn and Dan Potter will draw you in to  some very human aspects of these very special people who have performed super human deeds.”
    --– Deputy Chief Billy Goldfeder, Loveland Symmes FD, OH
“Usdin and Potter capture the essence of the fires, the buildings, the apparatus and faces and soul of FDNY; the jobs  and stories of the streets of New York - A phenomenal read with extraordinary photography, destined to be a classic.”
