When Tribeca Was Small (Part One)


Thanks to Craig for directing me to 6sqft‘s post about 80s.NYC. Developers Brandon Liu and Jeremy Lechtzin have taken the photos that the New York City Department of Finance collected in the mid-1980s and plotted them on an addictive interactive map. To give you a taste of what you’ll find on the map, I grabbed a bunch of the more delicious images to post here. I focused on the larger photos, which tend to be of smaller buildings. (Taller, thinner buildings got smaller photos.) It’s a stark reminder of how many one- and two-story buildings have been torn down in subsequent decades. You might also be surprised at how worn the neighborhood was in general.

All of the photos are courtesy of the New York City Municipal Archives; visit its website to search by address (the 1980s Manhattan photos are here) and to buy prints.

P.S. I’m dividing this into two posts because I collected too many photos for one post. Here’s W. Broadway and parts east, more or less from the north. The photos get a bit larger if you click on them.

Of course, some buildings looks the same.

··························

Where Café Clementine currently is.

··························

The northwest corner of N. Moore and W. Broadway.

The nursery that used to be where the Roxy Hotel is now.

··························

Where the 20-story 91 Leonard is under construction.

··························

The northeast corner of Worth Street. Check out how you used to be able to see the south side of the Clocktower Building.

··························

Around the corner on Worth Street (between Broadway and Lafayette).

··························

Broadway and Thomas, where the McDonald’s got (even) uglier after this was taken.

··························

The low building to the left is where Tribeca Tower is now. And I guess there used to be a street to the east of where Trimble Place is now…?

··························

Where the Duane Street Hotel is now.

··························

The Balloon Saloon!

··························

Sushi of Gari.

Torn down to make way for 30 Park Place.
