Oh Lord, does this look like a rabbit hole into which I could easily disappear (thanks for posting). I know I'm going to be perusing this wondering exactly where places I remember actually were (like Manic Panic). I share your concern that there are no attributes, credits or captions.


Some fantastic 1964 Worlds Fair photos


found a couple credited to jean pierre laffont; such as this one (in the folder "various"):


Cool! The subway pix, or at least the few I saw on a quick visit, are by Bruce Davidson.


Manic Panic was on the south sude of St. Marks Pl bet 2nd & 3rd Aves.

Jeez--this site is huge...I wish someone hadn't Photoshopped the crime scene pics to be partially B&W.


Looking down Frederick Douglas Blvd from 151st:


Off-Topic-Kid with Ian Hunter's just released trib to Mistah the windows and CRANK IT!


These photos of a great, vanished city make me hate the New New York more than I already do, if such a thing is even possible. The photo of the Market Diner with the cabs in front of it literally brought tears to my eyes.


This is amazing, thank you. I can never get enough NYC rubble-porn. It was so beautiful and spacious and interesting then. I really miss it.

Thanks, TuraLura!

That Village Voice building was its first home, on Greenwich Avenue. The building is still standing; I always pass it when I'm riding the M8 bus.


Wow, what awesome find!
