Here’s a vintage video to help pass the doldrums of your post-holiday Monday morning. It’s simply a two-minute stroll along the streets of New York City on July 18, 1990. Back when Hard to Kill and Robocop 2 were still playing at the Harris Theatre on 42nd Street.
The footage was predominantly shot in and around “The Deuce,” and we see all the fixtures of the time. The smut, the so-called Black Hebrews preaching, junkies on the nod, squeegee men, street vendors, and cops.
