NYC 1989

Back in the day, it seemed like every single playground had a special entrance which was sometimes more convenient, and also allowed us to come and go late at night…©Matt Weber

Remember, I can license almost any image on this site for documentary use, and I also sell signed prints at a very reasonable price…Thanks!KidChainLinkFence-1989 copy

“When the Last Frame Slips” 1986

My first camera was the affordable AE-1 Canon and when I would try and advance past the 37th frame, I’d only get a couple of sprocket’s worth of film.

Since I love the Empire State Building, I don’t mind…

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

Chun-Cha-Fu 1988

The funny thing is, I have been looking for a picture of this old upper west side restaurant for a long time and even google searches have turned up nothing. Then when I finally find a picture, it only shows the damn canopy!


I know a picture will turn up eventually…Chung??
