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.
