Open Thread: Remember The Old Gang (Video)

I didn’t have much to say for today’s open thread, so my plan was to turn to YouTube and drop in a random video of a cat nursing a puppy or something. But, when I logged in, this video came up as featured. It’s a video that a (former?) resident put together that stitches together photos of Sheepshead Bay from what appears to be the 1970s to the 1990s.

I feel like it’s a little bit of an invasion of the maker’s privacy, as most of the photos feature his old friends and neighbors around Brown Street and Haring Street between Avenue Z and Voorhies Avenue. But then, I figured, it’s on YouTube, right? To heck with privacy.

And besides, I’m betting more than a couple of you will recognize some faces in this video. Let us know who they are and what they’re up to now!
