monsoon, June 12, 2004 in New York City
That was great...those pics remind me of my first trip to NYC back in the late 80s when there was still a little grit leftover from the mid 80s.
Gee, just 2 years previously I visited N.Y.C. and this thread brings back so many memories.
Walking by Macys and the Empire State Building.
Walking both by and through Central Park.
Standing between the 2 mighty towers of the WTC.
Visiting both of the observation decks of the E.S.B. and the WTC.
Walking along the waterfront and seeing the Brooklyn Bridge from the ESB and walking both ways across it in the middle of (from memory) on wooden planks.
Thanks for the memories monsoon
Great shots of a truly different time in the history of the city.
Here are some shots of the Sphere as it is now. Amazing that it survived the impact.
It is currently at a memorial in Battery Park. These are from 2002.
um...nice pics, lots of memory
There's no place like New York City!!
You're an old man! I had just been born when you were in NYC.
I like your collection of NYC photos! I was around 5 years old then. I visited around 1986 and 1989. It's about time for me to go back. It did bring back some old memories of the 80's. My partner and I were talking about the 80's last week and some of the music, toys, and fashion. I have got to show him this.
Wow, monsoon, these are great.
Wow those are some great retro photos!
NYC is good, in 1984 or in 2004.
I must visit. Too bad I'll want to move there after visiting, I already know that.
Awesome pics! NYC was definately a lot grittier back then than it is today.
I like the throw back pics. I agree, NYC was much grittier back in the day.
Absolutely great pictures. Breathtaking views and lots of urban feel. Thanks for posting them, monsoon.
You have to love the 80's.....
at least this scene still survives in Central Park...
I remember going up the statue of libery while it was under renovation. It was a hot summer day, and the elevator was out of service. It made for a relatively unpleasant stair climb.
I know it! I love this thread.... looking back, the 80s were..... well..... strange.
I was the ages of 3-13 in the 1980s (I turned 4 in March of 1980 and 13 in March of 1989).... I do have some vivid memories......
