In 1997, EV Grieve reader Dave Buchwald worked on the cover art for 2600 Magazine, the publication that sponsored the Hackers on Planet Earth (HOPE) conference at the Puck Building. As a favor, Buchwald walked around the neighborhood, taking pictures of the restaurants, bars and stores that a computer hacker might want to visit while in New York.
He sent us some of the photos from 1997. Last Thursday, we walked up First Avenue. Today, we'll heading up north on Second Avenue to 12th Street.
