“1973 was the best of times. 1973 was the worst of times.”
Nike presents the Spirit of ’73 exhibit at Nike Stadium on Bowery in downtown Manhattan, celebrating the eclectic and vastly contrasting horizon of New York City nearly forty years ago – a far cry from what the metropolitan city is like today. A whirlwind of fresh new music sounds like hip-hop and punk rock, sports triumphs and failures, and mammoth architectural masterpieces was the driving force of the greatest city of the world; Bowery Stadium offers a small history lesson on the life and times of ’73 with a brand new spread of sneakers both new and old, and new faces and names representing the Big Apple. Check out the Spirit of ’73 now at 276 Bowery, or take a look at the gallery below for an inside look.
