Urban Archeology in New York’s Times Square, the “Capital of Pickpocketing”

I read this New York Times article (In Pickpocket’s Stash, a Peek at Life in 60’s) when it was first published in 1996, but I was reminded of it recently when talking to some friend’s about the look and feel of Time’s Square today.

It’s well worth rereading for a glimpse into both the peculiar treasures that construction reveals and for a glimpse at life in early 60s New York.
