Most of the photos you describe as being from the south Bronx are not. The south Bronx is actaully everything lower than 149th Street. Other areas have been described as the South Bronx based on economics or race. It’s simply not factual.

Growing up in NYC and Harlem in particular; brought back memories. When you are living in the moment you don’t realize it, until, you have passed it…

There’s a documentary on NYC photography. It’s very good. I was born in the 80s. I’ve never been to NYC. What I take so much from the photos of NYC of the 80s and before is how much times have changed for children. They used to be out playing in big groups. Not locked up in the house on their phones or tablets or watching the junk on cable TV. It was “be home before dark” and to eat. What happened?

Thank you. I now have a greater understanding and more compassion for the people in the neighborhood i live in but didn’t grow up in. Not everyone grows up the way i did with an idyllic large garden and green grass. E
