Old New York

Image from here

Back in January, Gothamist featured a collection of photos taken for LIFE magazine.  These photographs feature six young women living in a two room apartment in Greenwich Village in 1954. 

Yesterday, Gothamist posted pictures from a 1956 LIFE magazine article that was entitled "Memo to the Girls."  They followed a New York bachelor who avoided "husband hunters".  Apparently even back then the number of single men in New York fell short in comparison to the rest of the country. 

I love pictures of old New York.  Around McGolrick Park, especially in the evening, it still looks and feels like the New York of these pictures.
