One Particular Street Corner

Way back at the very beginning of this blog (last year) I started with a post about a particular street corner in mid-town (Broadway and 49th).  Today, while perusing through the internets on one of my usual rabbit-hole adventures I ran into another “vintage” shot of the same corner, circa 1986, on the Gothamist site, which was re-posting them from LIFE magazine.  So here’s three views of the same street corner over the span of 35 years.

LIFE Magazine -1986
Seinfeld – The Stranded – 1991

ASINY – August 2015
Update from January 28, 2017
Here’s another shot of the same corner from around 6:00AM on January 28, 2017.  Looks like the Ruby Foo’s is now shut down as well.  Can’t wait to see what kind of mediocre chain goes in there next.
