The north-side intersection of Delancey and Clinton Streets is notorious for being a dangerous crossing point. Indeed, we all remember too well the loss of 13-year-old Dashane Santana in January 2012. That single event prompted the DOT to finally implement changes to the traffic pattern along this dangerous stretch.
Let’s now take a quick trip back to this spot in the 1970s.
Thanks to photographer Cameron Armstrong, we have a time capsule look at a corner that remains somewhat unchanged to this day. Where a mobile phone store today peddles wireless junk, a coffee and donuts spot reigned. And how about them cobbled streets?
Soak it all up.
