Spend the day looking at more photos from East Village artist Carole Teller
[Undated photo outside Gem Spa on St. Mark's at 2nd Avenue]
The folks at the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation (GVSHP) have uploaded another batch of photos from the personal collection of East Village artist Carole Teller.
In this archive, you'll discover photos like this from the early 1960s showing the north side of First Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue, including (L-R) 40-56 E. First St. (For a reference point, Prune is at 54 E. First St. today.)
You can find "Carole Teller’s Changing New York, 1960s-1990s" featuring shots of the East Village, Lower East Side and some other areas right here.
And here's one more photo from this series... a look at the northeast corner of Third Avenue and St. Mark's Place circa 1991...
This assemblage will be demolished in the months ahead for a boutique office building.
You can access the previous Teller sets here ... here... and here... and shots from when "The Godfather Part II" filmed on Sixth Street here.
