Great picture! I look back at pictures from the 70s and I am appalled at the style my parents chose for me. I grew up in Fairfield County CT and remember my grandfather taking me and my siblings into NYC as a child. Movies like The French Connection capture the city as I remember it during that time period.

Small world. A few years later, we moved out of NYC and ended up in Armonk NY, right on the CT border.

Good shot.

Tri-x - I must have processed miles of that stuff.
