This Footage Of NYC’s East Village In The ’80s Is Spooky

It looks like the zombie apocalypse down there.

Go to the east side of downtown Manhattan now, and it’s all cool-kid bars, restaurants, and sky-high rents. This footage is witness to a grittier Lower East Side and East Village. There’s a bit of eerie weirdness on every corner. Like:
1. Trash everywhere.
2. Boarded up windows.
3. So many empty lots.
4. Graffiti everywhere.
5. And not to mention that there are HARDLY ANY PEOPLE ANYWHERE.
