[WATCH] Check Out This Moody Compilation Video of 1980's New York City Street Photography

This great compilation slide show of 1980s street photography from Berkeley photographer Janet Delaney shows a dirtier, grittier, yet quieter New York City in our Old New York days.

Janet Delaney is a photographer and educator based in Berkeley, California. From 1984 to 1987, Janet documented everyday street scenes on the opposite coast during several trips to New York City. With twin-lens Rolleiflex in hand, the photographer wandered the streets of Manhattan so different from the quiet suburbs of Los Angeles.

The song featured over the compilation is the moody Gymnopedie #1 from Erik Satie.
