Reply to "Old New York"

Hi Ben !

Great memories by you for that day -- and it was very nice you even took time to personally pay homage to the kid with the camera ! 

How many times I remember myself being out in snowstorms in the 1950's thru very late 1960's in NYC shooting transit -- on the roof of tenements in Dec. 1960 photographing the Bronx 3rd Ave EL from rooftops in the 166th thru 174th Street stations section - and that time when I caught that IRT R-33 / 36 WF fleet delivery on the old NYW&B Viaduct below E. 180th Street, Bronx,  in I think Feb 1964 in a snow storm -  both from track level on the snow covered 4 track former NYW&B RR trestle and lower earth embankment at E. 175th St, and from a Tenement Apartment Rooftop along side the Trestle over Lebanon Avenue.  Both times freezing my A--- off (and my feet) for the shots I have today !  It amazing the stamina, energy, and motivation for such when we were so much younger !

Regards ! - Joe F
