Incredible...
It's a much healthier environment today, to be sure, but far more sterile.

Sacdelicious Apr 17, 2008 6:51 PM

You caught my block in one of these shots. The transformation is amazing.

Chelsea Spy Apr 17, 2008 8:09 PM

fascinating thread - so much great architecture in Harlem... I'm glad the area is regenerating.

Minato Ku Apr 17, 2008 8:48 PM

Great transfomation, it remind me the transformation of the Northeastern Paris. (Even if it was never as bad as Harlem twenty years ago).
If I find picture i could make a similar thread.

But many modern buildings are too much sterile and very outdated.
An exemple here.

Great to see Harlem doing so well.

Coldrsx Apr 21, 2008 9:32 PM

unbelievable!

STLgasm Apr 21, 2008 9:38 PM

Unreal. I love NY pics from the '70s and '80s.

JivecitySTL Apr 21, 2008 9:51 PM

Dear God.

lfc4life Apr 29, 2008 3:04 PM

truly amazing, harlem looked like a bomb had been dropped on it from some of those earlier shots

wanderer34 Apr 29, 2008 4:45 PM

Looking at these pics, it reminds me of what will happen to parts of North Philly (especially around Temple University and Strawberry Mansion). It's going to completely change in the next ten years!!!

Grumpy Apr 30, 2008 3:12 PM

amazing thread ... some 80's shots are really depressing !

Ex-Ithacan Apr 30, 2008 4:20 PM

So yes, it can be done. There's plenty of fertile ground in US cities which could see similar changes. And if the price of gas continues its climb, I bet more sections of older cities will see folks moving back in and new development. Thanks for sharing your find.

This is a really fascinating thread.

Paul in S.A TX May 5, 2008 8:29 AM

Amazing!

ItsConanOBrien May 5, 2008 1:26 PM

Awesome.

ColDayMan May 6, 2008 12:37 AM

Amazing thread.

Cool Photos.

jodelli May 6, 2008 7:43 PM

Nice to see some of this thread is still around. I miss that picture of 125th looking east from the EL though.

Appreciate it, especially since I've only seen his 'The New American Ghetto' .

galaca May 6, 2008 9:09 PM
