50 Amazing Color Photos Capture Street Senes of New York in the 1960s

Before the recession of 1969 helped send New York spiraling into an era of drugs, poverty, and violence, the city had one last decade of mid-century glory, at least on the surface.

New York in the 1960s was a city full of life and diversity, from the executives of Madison Avenue to the artists of the East Village – but it was also a time of turmoil.

Take a look at these amazing color photos from Edward Crellin to see what street scenes of New York looked like in the 1960s.
