620 6th Ave

more than 20 years ago when new york was a VERY different kind of place this building housed a giant youth center called The Door. i think they moved downtown to spring street.

 

back in the early 80s' i would come here for hot vegan meals, get free medical care, flirt with girls and let boys flirt with me - - hell i was 17!

 

i also did tech work for theatre productions and they gave me a long wall to exhibit my photographs for a week or so.

 

i remember taking advantage of their free train pass every night at 11pm. we'd walk in a big pack down to 14th street and my little north bronx crew would wait forever for the LL canarsie local to union square, take the 4 to 149, the 2 to 180the and continue growing old for the 5 shuttle to dyre ave.
