Shopping in the East Village -- then and now

Here are some archival photos I came across showing locals doing their shopping on Avenue C and Sixth Street in April 1950.



Here's a photo I took the other day showing locals doing their shopping on Seventh Street near Avenue B.

Wow.....normal looking people of all ages wearing normal clothes who are shopping for normal things in real stores that sell normal things we actually need! And not one dimwit yunnie in a baby doll dress and flip-flops to be seen! Love those old photos - thanks for posting.

HI EVG-

Just wanted to say I've been luvin' your pix and posts both here and curbed recently. What we do without you, VNY, and all the others. Forget it all existed, I guess. Keep up the good fight.

Hi Tim,

Many thanks for the comment -- I appreciate it!

I like what you're doing on Colonnade Row as well!

Cheers,
EVG
