Image: Postcard of Brooklyn Bridge 1992 by Genevieve Hafner
Last year, I purchased a 1992 postcard of the area located directly under the Manhattan Bridge, now part of Main Street Park. The site in the postcard photo, above, is trash strewn, unattractive, and empty of people. Fast forward almost two decades later and this same area is lovely and actively used. While I do not have a photograph from the exact vantage point used in the postcard, the locations in the photographs below are to the left and right of the spot seen in the postcard image.
