Yesterday afternoon, we stumbled upon a trove of (color) images shot during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Photographer Tom Riggle uploaded nearly two hundred stills to a Flickr set definitely worthy of your precious time. But since there are too many great ones to republish here, we’ve chosen twenty of our favorites.
The collection offers a great snapshot of city life, spanning Boroughs, neighborhoods, and lifestyle (Coney Island, Lower East Side, Harlem, Bay Ridge).
