From Jackson Schroeder’s article for Bushwick Daily:

For a taste of what Bushwick looked like 40 years ago, take a stroll down Palmetto Street past the Roland Hayes schoolyard. There, you’ll see 20 photos taken decades ago by photographer Meryl Meisler, who taught and photographed life in and around the school for 11 years, from 1981-1992.

The images, which are a part of this year’s Photoville Festival, running until December 1, are appropriately tied to the schoolyard fence, exactly where some of the photos were taken decades ago.
