Flashback Friday: Cruisin’ 86th Street


Some things never change. Like that feeling of nostalgia you get while cruising 86th Street under the el at Bay Parkway. Here, a taxi cab takes that well-treaded route sometime between the mid-1930s and the 1940s.

This classic photo is available for purchase at Brooklyn Pix.

Flashback Friday is a new weekly feature in which we will archive photos from the past that epitomize Bensonhurst in decades prior — and we need your help! We are looking for personal photos from the late 1800s all the way through the 80s and 90s. Submit pictures for consideration to [email protected].
