I photographed these two young ladies several times near Harrison Gents graffiti and several times near Latin Kings graffiti. I think they had friends in both gangs. This was not unusual in the mid-1970s. The gangs were friendly with each other. Later, during the 1980s, the gangs became bitter enemies according to a gang expert who wrote me through this blog. One of these girls lived outside Uptown, but came to hang out in the neighborhood for the excitement (against her mother’s wishes).
