In Brooklyn, from Long Island. This blog serves as my memorial to the Old New York City, more glamourous times, and the rich history my home has to offer. I run an online vintage shop on Etsy selling vintage clothing sourced in New York City. Everything I sell is 100% NYC worn and 20 years or older.

It’s #tbt and yet again I’m featuring Andy Warhol. In 1981, he produced and starred in 3 short bits on #snl . In one, his head suddenly falls off after he finishes taking to Calvin Klein about what to wear to a party. His head tells a few jokes and ends by saying “Have a good time at the parties!” His headless body then walks about to hail a cab. - © “Warhol in 365 Takes, The Andy Warhol Museum Collection” check out 🔜 @warholsuperstars ‼️ it’s a little something I’m still getting together but if you like my #nyc photos and style, you’ll prolly like what’s coming soon. #nyc #newyorkcity #newyork #80s #1980s #snl #saturdaynightlive #vintage #retro #andywarhol #warhol #film #art #newshit (at 1981)

On this day in 1974, the Queensboro Bridge was designated a New York City Landmark. Officially known as the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge, construction on the Queensboro Bridge started in 1901 to facilitate communications between Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the farms of Queens and Long Island. At the time of its completion in 1909, it was the longest cantilever bridge in North America. The bridge has been featured in several films including the Dark Knight Rises.

This metrocard expired a whole ago but I have had it pinned above my desk ever since. I remember when it came out of the machine I was so excited and felt so special (I didn’t know about the other picture metrocards yet) I literally felt like id just found the golden ticket. It’s a special edition commemorating the 100 year anniversary of Grand Central Station. I’m going to keep this forever. #nyc #newyorkcity #history #grandcentral #newyork #ny
