NYCirca

By Jan Behmer

During the summers of 1983-1984, in my free time, I bussed and subwayed around various parts of New York, mostly Manhattan and Coney Island. My fairly new Nikon SLR was my prized possession, and with many rolls of black and white film, I had the best time. Those two summers hold fond memories and help remember another era in the Big Apple. The first few are posted below, with more to come. They are actually photos of the photos. However, with the 21st century digital advances, they will be upgraded shortly. I hope you enjoy them.
