While cleaning out their junk, my parents stumbled across an issue of New York News Magazine (whatever that is) from October 1974, a special issue dedicated to America’s fourth largest city—Brooklyn. Inside are priceless time-capsule glimpses of the past, from photographs of models and boarded-up homes to advertisements for malls and gentrification. We scanned the best of them to share with you here.
