Peekskill Hollow 1985

Finally scanned this picture of a “Real” gas station which was still in all its 1950’s glamour. The pumps were still operational and my pal’s car was a 1967 R/S small block Camaro…

Consecutive Frames 1985

It just so happened that these pictures were of two old movie theaters which were being torn down at the same exact time…Sad if you lived on the upper west side when it was a middle class neighborhood…

Upper West Side 1985

It has always been common to see a twenty year old Chevrolet on the streets of Manhattan. So why is this anything but common?   ©Matt WeberSilver-Corvette-1985 copy

The Circle Line 1985

I keep finding old negatives from ’85 which have elements of my childhood. This boat would have been the one I rode on several times. Long gone, I imagine it may have been pre-war, and it left one exposed to the elements much more than the new ships…

East 14th Street 1985

At first I was far more interested in photographing the old buildings and signs than the people of New York, which is obvious by what I focused my camera on…That would change.
