Went to NYC Times Square in 1979 and these pics are a throw back down memory lane. I especially loved the big hip hop glasses that were all the rage as well as the boy with the “boogie briefcase” as it was called. Back then all hip hop dancers needed was the briefcase and a large piece of cardboard or linoleum and the dance party started on any corner!
