16 photos from the EV Grieve archives for no reason whatsoever

A time-consuming project. I have thousands and thousands of photos from the time with this website (as well as many more spanning the years). They're all safely backed up and what not (in the cloud, man!).

However, the photos aren't organized. So I've been indexing the photos by subjects ("Abandoned toilets in the trash" or, say, "Woo.")

During all this, I found a few photos from the EVG archives that I like for one reason or another. I've posted a few of these. Others are new to the site.

[Second Avenue near 11th Street]


[3rd Street between Avenue A and First Avenue]


[Avenue B near 13th Street]


[Avenue A near East 10th Street]


[The Bowery near East Houston]


[First Avenue near East Fifth Street]


[East Seventh Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue]


[East 14th Street looking east]


[The former Cooper Square Hotel]

[Avenue B at East Houston]


[East Eighth Street near Avenue C]

Fabulous. My favorite is the chair on the sidewalk -- the white shoe makes it.

I believe I took this on 8th Street before the tree was cut back...

And thanks everyone...

Thanks for posting, Grieve. I love the "big snow" pic--Reminds me how much I enjoy just wandering down the middle of the quiet streets before they're cleared.

This would be fun to once a month, quarter, often?
That shot down Ave A has a lot of the feeling that Bob A. had in his PICS.
