It’s quite something to see artifacts from your own lifetime excavated in an archaeological dig! #digMass #recenthistory #genXJust found a tape of New Edition’s self-titled 1984 second album. Found at the bottom of the 1980s fill behind 6 Hudson St. We think that we have reached the bottom of the fill, today, and hope to be digging in the original yard deposits, soon
