Take a walk around the East Village on this June afternoon in 1986
Another video from the archives of Nelson Sullivan arrived on YouTube yesterday.
In this 13-minute video from June 1986, Sullivan crosses Third Avenue and heads east on St. Mark's Place ... turns south on Second Avenue ... and continues on East Seventh Street to Tompkins Square Park, where he spots Lady Bunny (out of drag) and DJ Dmitry... before hanging out on A and Seventh ...
Sullivan's video archive was donated to NYU's Fales Library & Special Collections in 2012.
He died of a heart attack on July 4, 1989.
