VIDEO – History of the South Bronx in pictures at Bronx Museum

From the late 1970s through the mid-1980s, photographer Lisa Kahane embarked on frequent trips to the South Bronx to capture the desolation that dominated the neighborhood.

Over two decades later in 2008, she released a collection of her vivid images in her book “Do Not Give Way to Evil: Photographs of the South Bronx, 1979-1987.”

Extracts of her work remain on display at the Urban Archives: That Was Then This Is Now exhibition at the Bronx Museum of the Arts through March 1.

Thanks to Lisa Kahane for permission to use her images. All other pictures by Ian Thomson.

  1. Good shots. A lot of change since I worked in that area. I’d love to see the Grand Concourse make a big comeback. The size of the apartments are unbelievable. Sunken living rooms, fireplaces.
