NY in the 80s 168
42nd Street. I have included this photo in my "NY in the 80s" set, although the phioto actually dates from the 1990s.
The poetry on the Times Square theater marquees was part of an artists' project that was sponsored by a government agency that was promoting Times Square redevelopment. The artists' project occurred in the brief transitional period in the 1990s between the old run-down Times Square and the new cleaned-up Disney version.
