Gritty photos of New York City 1978-1980

There’s so much visually that is unique to New York that you can literally look at a photo from any era and immediately recognise it as being from Manhattan or Brooklyn or Queens. These photos from Michael Sean Edwards, which were published on the How To Be A Retronaut website, are a stark reminder of just how gritty, tough, colourful and lively New York was some thirty odd years ago, and how much of that unique character has been stripped away in the intervening decades.
