20 Fascinating Photographs Show the Gritty Reality of 1980s New York City

Fascinating photographs show the gritty reality of 1980s New York City, a time when the city was blighted by criminality and the newly-completed Twin Towers pointed towards a brighter future.

The images were captured by photographer Steven Siegel during the 1980s - a time where Times Square was a haven of pornography and prostitution and much of the riverside was derelict and crumbling.

  1. Congratulations you're engaged! This is the first step on the long road of planning a wedding. There are many decisions to be made such as venue, the wedding dress, the honeymoon and not to forget who will be our maid of honor and brides maids.

  2. Planning to have a garden wedding is a choice that would show one's free-spirited attitude and inclination to nature - an event where everyone can be formal yet be hassle-free in movement

  3. Choosing Formal Attire Many people tend to dress less formal at beach weddings because its warmer and the setting is much different then that of a traditional church wedding. Its best to wear lighter fabrics so that you are comfortable at your wedding. Most girls don't wear long dresses due to the sand, so keep it short enough so it doesn't drag in the sand.
