Horseback riding in Jamaica Bay, 1979

This cool shot, captured by local photographer and National Geographic’s David Alan Harvey, depicts two horseback riders crossing an overgrown parkland in Queens (perhaps somewhere in Jamaica?) around 1979.

Making the photo especially powerful is the presence of the The Twin Towers peeking out in the distance. Check out Harvey’s portfolio for more stellar photographs.
