SoHo in the 70s

Here's an absolutely great photo gallery of downtown NY culture in the 1970s. Allan Tannenbaum took one of my favorite (non-Mappelthorpe) pictures of Patti Smith, which is here with a whole bunch of other great photos. The pictures of nightlife before plastic surgery are a revelation! Big noses, weak chins, fat asses, bushy pubes, small breasts, receding hairlines, zits, and all of the things that make human beings look like human beings. Wow! I'm seriously developing a fetish for the real!
