    There is no listing of the address of the Kaiser Apt. It was designed by prolific designer Paul Rudolph (1918-97), who also designed Halston's Manhattan residence and the Edersheim Apartment. I wonder if he could have done anything with the Radiohead Apartment.

    Oh LAWD radiohead please tell me it ain't yours! Surely you have a much warmer place to lay your (radio)head?

    Clockwork Orange: Chilling. I only watched it once. But the sets were far out.

    Great shots!
    The vibe of the city looked more down to earth (if that even makes sense)

    Anyway, thanks for sharing.

    Some '60's color pics from around town. Perhaps this thread needs to be renamed.

    Video: Old Greenwich Village, Just Like The Suburbs!

    by Jen Carlson

    Want to take a journey back in time to when Greenwich Village was just like Greenwich, Connecticut meets a modern bohemian Casbah? Then watch this vintage video, where the narrator explains that the neighborhood "is the postmark for many countrified cosmopolitans, people who prefer small town casualness to rigid metropolitan dress... Village life is cosmopolitan, yet relaxed, care-free. Pleasure is found in just being alive.

    Suburban living, on an urban landscape." Also: sidewalk cafes, free from conservatives! We don't want to give any spoilers, but be sure to stick around for (drum roll, please) the paradoxes and contradictions that nightfall brings.

    @ 0:45 ^ Snooki's Grandma

    @ 2:10 ^ Justin Bieber's Grand Pops

    @ 2:40 ^ Avril Lavigne's Great Auntie

    I never realized that NYC had barely any black folks in the '60s (at least none worth mentioning, according to this vid)

    Some more old 60's color slides and photos. Unable to credit as I'm unsure where they originally came from.

    New York City Skateboarders In The 1960s: Bill Eppridge's LIFE Photos Captured A New Craze (PHOTOS)


    Before cities everywhere built skate parks, and skaters strapped GoPro cameras to the bottom of their boards, the May 1965 cover of LIFE magazine featured San Diego's Pat McGee doing a handstand on a tiny, basic skateboard. "The craze and menace of SKATEBOARDS" reads the cover copy, ushering in a new cultural phenomenon.

    Bill Eppridge provided the photographs for the article, capturing, among other places, New York City all swept up in the skateboard fever. Take a look below at a sampling, courtesy of LIFE (go here for even more photos), and marvel at some stylish New Yorkers (time travelers?) piling onto boards and cruising through Central Park.

    Wow! Never mind the 'Mad Men' tag in the title. Very cool b&w shots of NYC in the '60s. Construction, architecture, street scenes, it's all here.
