A Look Inside “The Brooklyn Issue” of a 1974 New York News Magazine
By Brooklyn Magazine and Brooklyn Magazine
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.
