Greenpoint Back In The Day: Key Food

Like a number of lucky people I am whiling away my afternoon in the warm confines of Chez Shitty. To keep myself busy I have been reviewing my stash of snaps of Greenpoint from back in the day and decided to share the above juxtaposition of the intersection of Greenpoint Avenue and McGuinness Boulevard. The top photograph dates from the 1980’s 1970’s. The lower shot was taken yesterday afternoon by yours truly. I think we can all agree that although The Garden Spot of the Universe has experienced a number of changes over the years (many of which have not been very poisitve), the last thirty odd years have been very, very kind to McGuinness Boulevard. You’re only getting better with age Mickey G, here’s looking at you, kid!

  2. How sure are you that the top photo is from the 1980s? It looks older than that to me.

  4. You could very well be correct in your assessment that it pre-dates the 1980’s, dc108. Mine is at best an educated guess: most of the photographs I got in this lot hail from the late 70’s and early 80’s.
