Walker: After looking at all those pictures I only have one thing to say: YIKES! Tell me how NYC was better in the 70's again?
Lollipop165: The weirdest pics to me are Soho. My parents would NEVER allow me to go to Soho until well into the 90s (I had to go behind their backs). Their memories of it were worse than Harlem... and I can see why they were so scared of the area from these pics. When I finally forced them to go in, like, 1995 they were shocked: "It's like PARIS!"
Lollipop165: Although it is cute to see 15 year old punk kids still trying to work the St Marks vibe :-)
Pimparoo: A lot of NYC decay wasn't fixed so much as it was shipped out to places like Camden, Jersey City, Hartford, Baltimore...even Virginia Beach and parts of Florida.Of course, some simple minds would have you believe that Ray Kelly is the only thing standing between NYC and total disaster much worse than these pictures.
