I just watched "The Cruise", a 1998 documentary about a New York City tour guide - Timothy "Speed" Levitch. Interesting...
"Speed" knows everything about New York and is a very poetic (and eccentric) guy!
I have never lived in New York but have been there many times. I thought I'd search Etsy for some New York related items. LOOK!
Great souvenir scarf from the 1964-1965 World's Fair at blacklistvintage. I was there with my family but was too young to remember it.
Subway map votives from Blackbird Chic.
A beautiful shot of Central Park from irenesuchocki.
Fab 60's Milly of New York mini dress at Skin and Wood
A couple of cool vintage New York landmark prints from Bingo Box.
