childhood in new york.
Tuesday, April 16, 2013
new york magazine ran an article last week filled with tales from what it was like to grow up as a child in new york city. some childhood stories were from the 80's while others dated as far back as the depression. in short, the city was a pretty rough place to grow up (no surprise), but at the same time filled with normal bits of childhood we can all relate to. i keep going back to the photos...
cooling off in the hudson in 1948. doesn't this sort of blow your mind?

madison square boys club reading 3D comics in 1953.
