I recently heard Julie Hayden&rsquo;s &ldquo;Day-Old Baby Rats&rdquo; on the&nbsp;<a href="" onclick="_gaq.push(['_trackEvent', 'outbound-article', '', 'New Yorker Fiction Podcast']);" >New Yorker Fiction Podcast</a>. It got me thinking about NY in the 70s, when I was a kid. I&#8217;m not nostalgic about that time &mdash; I remember the smell of stale piss in the subways &mdash; but I do feel that the NY I remember is somehow &#8220;lost.&#8221; So I was happy to see these pictures which evoke that time as well as the story did.
