Harlem 1985

Another old house which caught me eye. If most of the brownstones were built in the 1880s and 90s,  then this one should be older, but I’m not an expert…©Matt WeberHArlem-Abandoned-House-1985 copy

Harlem 1985

Once upon a time there was this old house, a veritable mansion just sitting up there in Harlem on nearly half an acre. I was very intrigued and wished I had the money to restore it, but then I blinked and it was gone…

Harlem 1985

Taken a few years before the “Gold Rush” on Harlem real estate. These shells were there for pennies and I wish I had seen the potential, but my crystal ball was a bit blurry at the time! ©Matt WeberHarlem-Tenements-Laundromat-1985 copy

“Sugar Hill” Harlem 1985

At one point in time, you could double park and come out to find your car stripped down to the bone!

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…
