SE corner of Canal Street and Broadway. the grimey ole days!
I see the Mafia was having a little meeting in front of Dave's.
That is now the SoHo Garden Hotel. Though that’s relatively new. The building was renovated maybe 6-9 years ago. There used to be a fun Ukrainian speakeasy on the 2nd fl.
Not sure when Dave’s closed but I can confirm it hasn’t been there for the last 18 yrs. I’ve lived or worked within a mile of this corner for that whole time. It’s changed a lot. A lot a lot.
This looks like a scene out of the 70s to me. I grew up in Astoria during the 80s and I can't remember NYC looking this clean then and the cars and clothing seem a bit off. Memory is weird though.
Wait a second- 1984 isn't that long ag-
Shit. I got old.
better be careful of C.H.U.D attacks
any New Yorkers know if Dave's is still opened?
crazy how dramatically an overflowing trashcan can change the vibe of a setting
