More Photo Mysteries from our Newest Historic Photo Collection

We recently unveiled the new addition to our Historic Image ArchiveCarole Teller’s Changing New York, Part 4, which includes about two hundred fifty images of Greenwich Village, the East Village, NoHo, the Lower East Side, and everywhere from Times Square to the Financial District from the 1960s to the 1990s.  Between Carol’s memory and our sleuthing, we were able to identify the exact locations of more than 90% of the images.  But some mysteries remain.  Carole’s cousin emailed us to tell us the location of this previously unidentified photo of Stanley’s Coffee Shop was 14 Avenue A, based upon a 1982 NY Times article about health violations.

We’ve still got about twenty pictures in the new collection of which we have been unable to identify the location. We need your help — do you know the location of any of these newly released unidentified photos? If you think you know any of the locations, please email us at info@gvshp.org.
