"Her black and white photographs are a study in compositional skills when photography was much different from the present era of technological advancement." * Blouin Artinfo *
"She [Boretz] has mastered the ability to arrest the viewer's eye and resonate with the timeless photographs of children playing in the park, streets, and schoolyards. As well as the intimacy in lovers, strangers, and relatives.Streetembodies the entire spectrum of the complexities of the common people." * Daily Beast *
"Instead of capturing the social and political strife that dominated the city during that period, Carrie's work focuses on the subtle and often familiar comings and goings of everyday life in the neighbourhoods around where she lived, before the city was reborn and regenerated into the New York we know today." * i-D *
"The book is a testament to seeing, Carrie managing to stay hyper aware of juxtapositions and relationships, but it is also a testament to commitment, returning year after year to the streets in search of that split second of something real and beautiful." * Lenscratch *
"The photographs detain notions of simplicity and awareness, avoiding the commotion of the city. The book brings together works of the past, but with aspects of humanity that remain on the streets today." * Wallpaper* *
