From the article by Miss Rosen for blind magazine:
Meryl Meisler revisits the start of her photography career when she moved to New York and reveled in the pleasures of the city’s decadent nightlife scene.
As a Baby Boomer coming of age in Massapequa, Long Island, in the 1950s and 1960s, Meryl Meisler enjoyed the picture perfect suburban American childhood. Her days were filled with Girl Scout meetings, piano lessons, twirling practice, and ballet class; on weekends, her family would take trips to New York City to catch a Broadway show. Glamour and theatricality filled her youth, setting the stage for things to come when she moved to Manhattan during the summer of 1975, after receiving her MA in Art from the University of Madison in Wisconsin.
