You know me – I can’t say no to a picture of Manhattan in the bygone 1980s. This is the northeast corner of Broome Street and Broadway (otherwise known as the Haughwout Building) circa the early part of that decade. These days, this building is freshly scrubbed and plays host to a Bebe outlet (whatever that is). It’s a predictable sentiment coming from a nostalgist such as I, but I do prefer the days when SoHo looked like this.
In any case, I spotted this image on this blog, New York History Walks (tagline: I walk around New York City and wonder about its past). It doesn’t look to have been updated too recently, but there are some nifty things to be learned therein.
Check it out, do.
