My last post had me remembering my babyhood in the 70's. I found the above video short filmed in the 70's. Aside from Guiliani/Bloomberg homogenization there is not too much difference between then and now. But the faces have changed, there was a unpretentious quality to folks back then. Unlike now, the city seems filled with posers.
On a side note, I can't believe the clothing. It looks as if the ugly clothing donation truck made a drop off and everyone grabbed something to wear. I like the 70's time period but this film reminds me that most times people were stuck with some really awful clothing.
