East 12th Street and Avenue A tonight: Waiting for the President to pass by

Our photographer friend Michael Sean Edwards was among the many stuck waiting at 12th Street and Avenue A tonight ... He passed along a few photos from the corner...








... and the money shot...


So what was the story? The NYPD wasn't letting anyone cross 12th Street from C to Fifth Avenue for nearly 30 minutes? One person told me that, though we weren't sure exactly what the wait time was...

That overarching feeling of nostalgia

Back in February in February 2010, we came across the Flickr page of East Village resident Michael Sean Edwards, who had uploaded an array of neighborhood photos from the late 1970s and early 1980s...

Michael, who still lives in the neighborhood, let us know that he now has a website with various galleries of his work. You can find his site here.

As he wrote: "This gallery is fairly eclectic. Between what seemed very brief periods of being gainfully employed, I roamed around the Village taking photos, day and night. If I had to describe the overarching feeling that inhabited me, I would call it nostalgia."

Meanwhile, here are a few of the photos that you'll find...

Like this one of Ray's...



...the Gem Spa...



the East Village Fruit Exchange, Seventh Street and First Avenue circa 1979 ...



Avenue A and St. Mark's Place, circa 1979...



and my favorite... our favorite bar owner circa 1985...
