My sister reworked this old picture from the VERY early 80’s (possibly even late 70’s) our brother took from our old fire escape on Delancey St in New York City. I know it’s not as clear and perfect as the photos a person can take nowadays with the cheapest camera phone but I still love it. I love all the old cars coming off the bridge, the old stores that no longer exist, and the view of the Williamsburg that is such a part of the New York landscape today as it was back then. We spent so much time on that fire escape, I wonder how we didn’t fall down and die. If anyone saw a kid just hanging out on one today, the cops would be there ordering him or her to get their butt down faster than you can say “Stop & Frisk!” Ahhh…some things change but it’s always fun to get it on film!
Here’s to Throwback Thursday!
