Sheridan Square Then and Now

March 20th, 2008 Posted in Uncategorized

I saw this picture online somewhere. It’s the corner of Christopher Street and 7th Avenue and it was taken in the sixties, I believe it said. This is only a few blocks from where I live so I took of picture of how this corner looks now.

It’s kind of astounding how little it’s changed. The lovely cobblestones are gone, there are a few new buildings, that’s about it. But some details are gone, some signs and things that are hard to see in the picture above. I’m going to try to dig up a picture I took of this very corner about ten years ago.

    Too bad about the cobblestones but you have to admit that the streets are a whole lot cleaner without all the litter.

    Although not revealed within the photo, the one thing that has changed greatly is the price of real estate. Yikes !!!

    I love photo comparisons like this. I think there is a series of coffee table books with this exact premise – London, Paris, there must be a NYC one. I’ll have to look them up…

    i really get into these comparision photos.
    Interesting in this one to see how much hasn’t changed.

    Me, too. I love these kinds of comparison photographs. I’m remembering that a group called The Village Independent Democrats used to meet to the right of Village Cigars. I went to a meeting when I first moved to the city, but I think they were pretty geek-y.
