TBT. Going WAY back to the 1940's with this one. My dad, around age 10 with his Mom, my grandmother- rooftop on the L.E.S. (lower east side), of Manhattan, NYC. My dad would live only another 27 years. He died at age 37. 😶🗽 #anthonydelorenzo #annadelorenzo #lowereastside #les #rooftop #rememberwhen #loving #sonandmom #tilwemeetagain #tooyoungtodie #tbt #pricelessphotos #misstheolddays #fate #destiny #oldnyc #oldnycphotos #grittynyc #manhattan #uponaroof #innocence #stresskills #nycphotography #newyorkcity #vintagenyc

Throwing it *way* back to 1938 when Strand was only 11 years old. 😮 Then, Fourth Avenue was called "Book Row", covering six city blocks with 48 bookstores. As the sole survivor of Book Row, Strand is proud to be celebrating 90 years in business this June!🥂Join the celebration with the link in our bio••• #tbt #bookrow #bookstore #nyc #Strand90 #eastvillage #bookstagram

"...And on the other side of town was a kid named Flash". Great shot of the Grandmaster doing his thing in the late '70s, re-posted from Founding Fathers. Check their Facebook page and their excellent documentary on YouTube for some serious NY Hip Hop history. There's also a doc on YouTube called 'Simpson Street' which has some rare footage of Flash rocking 'Apache' at a South Bronx party in 1977 which is worth checking out 👊🏻#grandmasterflash #foundingfathers #hiphop #hiphophistory #southbronx #boogiedownbronx #oldschoolhiphop #hiphoppioneers #dj #hiphopdj #breakbeats #oldnyc #oldnycphotos
