Vintage Photos of New York City Street Scenes in 1975

A brilliant computer engineer by profession, a fountain designer by fame, Nick DeWolf was a most prolific amateur photographer, capturing the 20th century existence through decades and continents. Lucky for us, a dedicated archivist from Seattle has been tirelessly digitizing his photographs. As DeWolf’s Flickr collection nears 50,000, let’s take another nostalgic little trip through 1975 New York City via reel #66. See anti-war and anti-pornography demonstrations in Times Square, Yakuza films playing on 42nd Street, teeming bookstores, adult magic shows, Central Park pigeon feeders, Chinatown children, and a few fabulously dressed ladies strolling though Midtown in our slideshow.

  1. For the born traveller, travelling is a besetting vice. Like other vices, it is imperious, demanding its victim's time, money, energy and the sacrifice of comfort.
