Wallet Card on 42nd Street in 1987

The organization New 42nd Street was behind the 1990s transformation of 42nd Street in Times Square from a seedy adult area that tourists stayed away from, to the very family- and tourist-friendly mall-like atmosphere it now has. Recently, to celebrate the transition, they have put up a nearly full-size panoramic photo of 42nd Street in 1987 that almost lets you feel like you've stepped 30 years back in time. Here is a photo of the Wallet Card in front of what 42nd Street looked like when the card was first printed.
