  1. Duffy Square? I’ve never heard of it. Does it still exist?

    This photo is a perfect example of how the value of an image can appreciate with time. Aside from great composition, it’s become historic!

    Times Square of past looks so stripped down (no pun intended) compared to today’s chain stores and flashing lights and billboards.

    During last year’s visit, I was devastated to see they were leveling most of the buildings on 54th Street across from Studio 54.

    Most of the buildings looked like they hadn’t been touched or inhabited since the 70s, but for some nostalgic reason, I loved looking around the area imagining the whole vibe that existed when hundreds of people waited outside 54 in hopes of gaining entrance. Based on photos I’ve seen, the lobby of the 54 has remained virtually untouched.
