NY in the 80s 152

Times Square, 1987. Sort of a visual metaphor for what would happen to Times Square in a few short years after this photo was taken... The smoke, I suppose, is Disney's pixie dust! Even the forecast -- "fair, warmer" -- turned out to be an accurate prediction of Times Square's future.
