Old School Hangs on Prince Street '92 / by Drena De Niro

This is Dondi White (one of the most influential graffiti artists in NYC) and I on Prince Street around ’92 I think. I had just run into him and Ricky Powell on the street and stopped to hang out and talk with them a bit.

NY back in the day was more chill. People hung out more in Soho because it wasn’t so retail oriented back then. There were art galleries, book stores , art stores ,clothing stores, leather shops ,nail salons, health food stores, specialty shops, bakeries, flea markets and no giant chain stores back then. It was a lot more fun to hang out there back then. It was a lot more locals and a little lot less touristy like it is now.
