Summer in Brooklyn: 1974

Looking back on a different time is always interesting.

I just came across THIS collection of photographs taken in Brooklyn during the summer of 1974, which have all the elements of old New York. Times change, and you can bet that Brooklyn now is way different than Brooklyn in 74.

— Photographer Danny Lyon spent two months snapping pictures of the daily life in the borough — exploring Bushwick, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Fort Green and Park Slope among other neighborhoods.

Check out the pics HERE.
