Stunning Color Snapshots Captured Everyday Life in New York in the 1960s

It was the end of the Sixties, the summer of love when students protested the Vietnam War and a young photographer and his father explored New York City. With a camera always to hand, Tom Riggle and his family explored every corner of Manhattan, from Chinatown and Harlem, to Bay Ridge and Coney Island.

'I have lots of memories of these trips we took around the city,' Riggle told Mail Online. 'As you can see ... I have been bitten by the same photo bug as my dad.'

Tom Riggle uploaded nearly two hundred stills to a Flickr set definitely worthy of your precious time. Taken during 1967 and 1968, these selected stunning photographs show everyday life of New York City in the late 1960s.
