Old New York

East 17th Street

"It was grittier in this neighborhood. There was a sense of history. It was old New York, except that there were also a few pizza places, upscale cocktail lounges, and packs of young people standing outside bars. There was a disconnect between people and backdrop, as if we were all presupposed into this .universe. It was modern-day life in an old setting, a taste of how New York used to be at the turn of the century. It gave us a chance to see what it ..was like, to feel like the city might actually be dangerous, even though, in reality, it wasn't. It was just enough danger to be fun."
Leslie Cohen, This Love Story Will Self-Destruct
