Fascinating Black and White Photographs Capture Street Scenes of New York City in the 1960s and 1970s

Absolutely stunning photos of Paul McDonagh made them at the turn of the careless and well-sixties with violent and restless seventies. Very interesting time. Just a few years, but the world and the people in it are completely transformed.

You look at these photos and you realize that since New York City has changed, people have changed, times have changed, but the atmosphere is one of the craziest cities in the world will not go away. And even though the court is no longer the '70s, but it seems that people and situations, as in these photos, can be found on any given day, you just simply walk around the streets of New York.
