24 Eerie, Yet Stunning Photos Of Cars In 1970s NYC


NYC cars 1970s

A keen photographer called Langdon Clay spent 2 years (between 1974-76) roaming the streets in New York city at night, taking photos of typical and abandoned cars of the time.

If you did that today, you’d end up with a gallery of dribble.  But I challenge you to scroll through these 24 STUNNING shots and tell me you’re not impressed!

Enjoy 🙂

So that’s it for this gallery, every single picture that Clay took can be found in his awesome book: ‘Cars- New York City- 1974-76’.

The book has been on sale for a little while now, but I thought it was worth sharing some of the amazing shots with you guys.
