This is Brooklyn with probably a missing link. The vintage images give an idea of New York City borough’s layout before the hipsters hit the floor. It has been the pilgrimage of the hipsters freaking out with their music and art. Brooklyn, however, has always been home to the more creative souls who love traveling and seek a better life. These snaps are a part of Ed Clark’s efforts to show what lay within post World War II, New York’s thickly populated borough. The dazzling lights of the Coney Island overlooking couples embracing in the beach, while the rooftop is a great place for a friendly chitchat on warm summers, as the Bed-Stuy gets families gathering in. These vintage photos reflect more of family scenes, while the sudden burst of hipsters wearing trendy and flashy attires has resulted in opening of a number of cafes, record stores, small breweries and boutiques. These photos from 1940s show that people’s love for Brooklyn is definitely an old flame and it still has retained the ability to free thinking and creativity.
