You're welcome! I'me glad you liked them. I love these vintage pics too. I was hoping to do a vintage Detroit thread, but they don't have any :(. Oh well, I'll try to get some good pics of downtown when I go for the Auto Show :).

Thanks once again Allen. Having been to NYC it's pretty cool seeing all these familiar places along with all the changes I can see that have happened around them.

Awesome, just awesome pics! :D

GREAT pictures! They make me want to go back in time. Is it just me, or did NYC (and all cities) lose a bit of civility and class from 1970 on? Or maybe I'm just getting older (I'm only 40, though:)
