Fort Greene Park circa ’76

April 2, 2008

Here’s some pics I found in my parents house that my father took in 1976. It seemed like we were always in Fort Greene park, pops still plays and gives tennis lessons to this day! In one of the pictures you can even see the Twin Towers/WTC. Now I don’t know who’s the young lad in the pics but I’m sure he grew up to be a hell of guy lol!! Enjoy….

 The bonus pictures were taken on Clinton ave. between Willoughby and Myrtle. This is before we moved further up the block.

    I’m sorry, but NY dads in the 70s were just a lot cooler looking than their contemporary counterparts. Love seeing the neighborhood like this. Don’t stop, bknesto!

    Now that’s what I call a stroller! It almost makes me want to have a baby.

    Thanks for the comments..glad you all like them. Hey Billy P, I do agree with you, however I’d like to think I’m a “cool looking” dad. I’ll have to ask my kids tonight!
