Vintage Photos of Brooklyn

Vintage Photographs of Brooklyn, New YorkNew York photographer Danny Lyon spent time shooting pictures of the city that he lived in and loved. This collection of  stunning vintage images gives a glimpse of what life was like in the BK nearly 40 years ago. Photo sets like this one are great because you can recognize the streets and buildings. If you can’t identify that street or view directly you still get washes of familiarity because New York City is where you live too.  Throughout the decades, demolition and developments the city will always live on.

If you’ll let us, Unseen NYC would love to hold onto your pictures of the city. Just mosey over to this post about how to add your pictures to the Unseen NYC collection.
