Vibrant Life Of 1970s Harlem In Street Photos By Jack Garofalo

Life in the 70s had a unique vitality and aesthetic, unlike any other decade before or since. Jack Garofalo (1923-2004), an accomplished street photography professional for Paris Match magazine, spent the summer of 1970 documenting the vibrant lives of real people of Harlem, a neighborhood that was undergoing an existential crisis at the time.

Harlem in the 1970s was undergoing an exodus, as anyone who could be moving to other neighborhoods in New York to escape the neighborhood’s poor infrastructure and crime. Some stayed because they couldn’t move out, while others stayed because they wanted to. But despite the difficulties, the neighborhood was an undeniably vibrant place perfect for taking stunning pictures.

Garofalo’s interesting photos are like a time machine, taking you back to a place and time that you’ve never seen and never will (unless you were there, too). Take a look at the real life of the 70s!
