These fabulous photographs are from Andy Blair’s Flickr site (previously featured). He’s taken us back to 1970s New York before, but now we’re focusing on Jersey City.

In the 1970s the city experienced a period of urban decline that saw many of its wealthy residents leave for the suburbs, due to rising crime, civil unrest, political corruption, and economic hardship. From 1950 to 1980, Jersey City lost 75,000 residents, and from 1975 to 1982, it lost 5,000 jobs, or 9% of its workforce.
