    A friend of mine shared this Facebook page with me a couple of days ago, and I thought some urban folks might be interested. The contrast between then and now is incredible.

    There are about 450 photos in the timeline album. It's also interesting to read comments from other Facebook users. Clearly, a lot of old New Yorkers follow the page, and some of them talk about living in the places shown in the photos back in the '70s.
