History In Pictures: Walking Through New York City, 1977-1978

The Big Apple is still one of the most visited cities in the world. It bears a lot of history and culture, through its streets, the architectural design of its buildings, and the faces of the people walking by.

Spanish photographer Manel Armengol wanted to capture the essence of what New York was and is. It culminated in his album of black-and-white New York City photographs which shows the landscape, the scenes, the people, the parks, the cars, and the streets on which he traversed.

You may check out his album here.

Wow, these brought me back. I was in high school at the time and we used to take the LIRR into the city (that's exactly what we called it: The City. As if there weren't any others). It was filthy and parts of it were creepy (Times Square at the time) and we loved it. Look at all the mom & pop shops in these photos--fewer chain, few "boutiques" and more independently owned stores that served their communities. That I miss.
