Ah, the Old Days…


I remember it well.


Recognize most all of these spots. This one here (below) was on 49th street between Broadway and 7th Avenue. When I first worked as a messenger in the Brill Building, summer of ’88, you couldn’t walk a city block without running into a porno theater. I remember making runs from 49th and Broadway down to the Technicolor lab which was on 44th street between 8th and 9th, seeing the viles of crack cocaine scattered along the sidewalk, and being propositioned by the hookers with bruises on their legs and arms. I moved fast in those days.


This trip down memory lane has been brought to you by Mitch O’Connell [5]. In six parts: one [6], two [7], three [8], four [9], five [10], and six [11].
