"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

New York Minute

The street photography of New York in the 1980s by Jamel Shabazz still sings.

Peace to How to Be a Retronaut (the gift that keeps giving).

Love that site - these pics definitely transport you back to that time!

PS - I stumbled across the "shopping malls in the 1990's" and there's one picture (Mall21) that if I were a betting woman would swear was taken at Smithhaven Mall in Lake Grove out on Long Island where I worked from 1990-1993. If it is, I'm a little disturbed with myself that I can still recognize a storefront from that long ago! HAHA!

Must be early, re-clamdigger 80s, when shorts were really short.

I can't believe that I used to wear shorty shorts and tall white socks.
