I love this picture, because although it somewhat surprises me, it's typical Weegee. From the New York Times:
'Unknown Weegee,' on Photographer Who Made the Night Noir
Arthur Fellig, better known, and very well known, as Weegee (1899-1968). From the 1930's into the 1950's, he was a photographer for New York tabloids, the kind of papers Ralph Kramden might have read. Tireless, loquacious, invasive, he cruised the wee hours. For him the city was a 24-hour emergency room, an amphetamine drip.
There's no excuse for me not to make this show-
And enjoy the slideshows of some of the photographs at the above NY Times link.
