    Pre-Disneyfication. It was a lot more fun.

      I was propositioned every time I walked through here.
      But the banter was fun and the place wasn't heavy.

      I thank you so much for posting this photo. This is my first memory of New York City at age 19. I wandered from the Port Authority into those seedy theaters on that block. My eyes were opened. (lol)

      GREAT photo. NYC has really "cleaned up its' act", but I remember those days in the late 70's when I was in my 20's, and I miss those times. So diverse, the people were NOT all family tourists with their kids in tow. It wasn't perfect, but it was a whole lot cheaper to have a good time, from seeing a Broadway show, to getting a good meal. If only my "younger friends" could experience what I did back then. RIP FUN NYC!

      So glad these have brought back good memories. I was in my 20's and it was my first time out of Oz. We were in NY for 3 months and it was soooooo exciting.

      It all looks a bit down at heel. Remnants of the '50s enjoying the '60s and faded glory by the '70s. Past the world weary, though, it must have been something else.
      I'm guessing Diane, that you were using slide film, given the quality of the image.

      Yes It was slide film........NY back then was so exciting and dangerous for a young Oz girl....still love NY but now a bit Disney
