Forgotten New York Takes On Lower 2nd Avenue

Forgotten New York has a great photo tour of lower 2nd Avenue. There are side by side comparisons of photos taken along 2nd Avenue over the past 6 years highlighting what has changed, and what has remained the same. Get the pictures, and the story, here from Forgotten New York…

“Lower Second Avenue has been German (the Kleindeutschland devastated by the General Slocum accident in 1904) Jewish (the Second Avenue Deli its most noted manifestation), Indian, Polish, and even the Irish had a now-little known enclave. Now that some of lower 2nd is due to follow much of the Bowery under the wreckers’ ball, I thought it would be a good time to revisit the disparate shots and stitch them into a page that will reveal what is due to disappear, and what will still be.”
