“Sugar Hill” Harlem 1985

“My First Taxicab” 1985

There was this cute little gas station on 94th & 3d Ave. and my taxi had a KYSOR AC unit on the roof, which was made for trucks. Needless to say, I was chilling…

Harlem 1985

I just scanned this Kodachrome slide from ’85 and it is all about the old traffic light. Back when I took the picture these were already very rare. Besides this one in Harlem, there was one in central park and another one on Park Ave. Forgotten New York has more on these beautiful structures…

This image and most others can be licensed for documentary use and is also available as a signed print…
