Bennett, a native New Yorker who now resides in Los Angeles, recently shared more photos from the era. He grew up in Greenwich Village and lived in the East Village from 1979 to 1988. (You can read more about him here.) He gave us permission to post these EV street scenes from the 1980s. (Top photo is outside the former Love Saves the Day on the NW corner of Second Avenue and Seventh Street.)
Here are a few more shots from his archives (click on the image to go big) ...
St. Mark's Place... here.
If you liked these, perhaps we can have an encore one of these days. Thanks to Peter for sharing!
