More Vintage Snapshots of New York In The 1970s

(first posted 1/10/2017)    A couple of months back, I shared you a gallery of 1970s vintage snapshots of New York. It was popular, so here’s some more. I picked this one as there’s a white Peugeot 404 just like the one I had, as well as a “fishbowl” GMC bus like I used to drive. And my mom had a ’73 Coronet like the taxi. Let’s see if you can find any of your old cars.
