I was alive in the 80s and I grew up in Brooklyn, so I know NYC wasn’t always fancy hotels and co-ops. Young whippersnappers probably haven’t a clue as to what the Big Apple looked like before Giuliani cleaned up and later, Whole Foods moved in. In the 1980s, the New York City subway was a particularly gritty scene and not somewhere you wanted to be at night. Back then, fearless young photographer Christopher Morris¬†¬†documented the overall decrepit conditions of New York’s underground transportation. The rare photo series can be seen over at My Modern Met.
