Cars of the Grit and Grime 70’s New York

If you like 70’s New York grit and grime, fugetaboutit!

This series of decidedly 70s cars parked under streetlights in 1970’s New York is a trip down nostalgia lane.  It was an era of long flat cars, past the era of clever tail fins, and into a grimier, more depressive time, when many parts of Manhattan were downright shabby, far from the high rise glam of today. Taken between 1974 and 1976, Langdon Clay has encapsulated the era pristinely, so to speak.  Via Fubiz:
