Maggie Hopp's Color Photographs of Times Square's Sex Industry in the 1970s

Local photographer and real estate agent Maggie Hopp captured these incredible color photograph of Times Square back in the 1970s, the essence of “Old New York.”

Experimenting in the 1970s with color film, and commissioned to document buildings and signage in Midtown in violation of the Blight Ordinances, American photographer Maggie Hopp was able to create a very colorful portfolio of images which now look nostalgically benign, a colorful collection of what remained in the 1970s.

For a recent interview with Ragazine, Hopp revisited her archives of Times Square.
