East Village Nostalgia Treasure Trove Unearthed


EV Grieve has found a Flickr page maintained by one Michael Sean Edwards that contains a few dozen shots of the East Village from the 1970s and 1980s. While not quite in the same class as the National Archives Flickr page, it may bring a tear of reminiscence to the eyes of old school bohos. Walls covered in wheat-pasted band posters; the old Tompkins Square bandshell; and, of course, bums, before they lost the Bowery to the New People. Fossils, enjoy!
