New York City in the 1980’s was  an entirely different place than it is now. More dangerous, more disheveled, and way more disorganized, the city of then and the city of now would not even resemble one another if it weren’t for NYC’s many iconic buildings, which have stood witness to both urban decay and rebirth. French website Konbini has compiled some awesome photographs of life in 1980’s New York City and we have cobbled together a wonderful video gallery to offer even more insight into this transitional period in the United States largest city.
