Scenes Unseen: The Summer of ’78

Six months ago, a conservancy official cleaning out an office came across two cardboard boxes that had been sitting around for decades.

Inside were 2,924 color slides, pictures made in parks across New York City’s five boroughs late in the summer of 1978. No one had looked at them for 40 years.

There are some really good images in here, and I'd love to have the opportunity to see the full exhibit. It really paints a picture of a time and a place in a way that only photography truly can.
