Wow did the subway always look that shitty back then? Makes the A trains look gorgeous.
in the 80s I used to play hooky from school in westchester and take the train into the city and ride on the subway. it was sketchy but not that bad. the 70s were a lot worse i hear…
this looks like home.
nyc was more fun but also more dangerous.
interestingly, even into the late 80s there were basically ZERO national chain stores in manhattan. The few that existed were originally NYC-based anyway, like Barnes & Noble.
Can anybody point me in the directions you any good articles about (a) how bad NYC was back then and (b) how it was turned around?
This looks like something taken from the underground life of a cyberpunk dystopia.
Loved those guys especially Curtis Sliwa.
I wonder if the aqueduct is still open. I mean it’s has to be, it’s the most exciting restaurant in New York!
