This photo by Michael Sean Edwards from 1984 is the closets and oldest photo of my building I’ve been able to find. I’m just around the block on the left!

I wonder if they were having a rent strike because they didn’t have hot water for a week or gas for 3 months.

My building too!

(also, 8th street? come onz)

(also, wish we had a superette still, whatever that is)

(the parts about hot water and gas are true!)

This is nifty.

(also my building!)

(superette = basically the predecessor to bodega, per my one minute of research)

(if we hung a sign like that now, what would happen? what would the Shaloms say?!)
