The Way We Were

Greenwich Village, Winter 1983. Photo by Irene Young.

This site is very much a work in progress, so the early postings are going to be somewhat tentative and experimental; this first post, in fact, is mostly just a test to see if I know what I'm doing.

It'll get better soon, though. I promise.

In the meantime, these were the savage young Flo Mos on a very chilly day, in front of a wall somewhere near my digs on Bleecker Street. I imagine we were all having fantasies about those black-and-white shots of the Fabs in Hamburg.


  1. I remember that over coat Steve. Still have it? :-)

  2. I have one just like it.

    That was what everybody in SoHo was wearing that season.

    The joke was that all the artists inevitably were "intense young men with Frankie Avalon haircuts and oversize overcoats."
