Jackson Heights in 1983

Here's a great NY Times profile of Jackson Heights from 1983.  Lots of interesting details here.

Here's one amusing bit of trivia: Today, as we await the opening of restaurants named "Romeo" and "Julieta" in different parts of the neighborhood, there were once eateries by these names directly across the street from one another in JH.
