NYC in the 1990s: See photos from Crown Heights riots, World Trade Center bombing and more

The ’90s are in the not-so-distant past, but they were a historic time for New York City.

The decade saw unrest in Brooklyn as Crown Heights’ Jewish and black communities clashed in 1991 when two black children were hit by a station wagon — part of a motorcade for a Jewish rabbi. And tragedy struck in 1993 at the World Trade Center when a bombing claimed the lives of six people.

There were happier times, too, as the New York Yankees won three World Series and the Rangers took home the Stanley Cup.

Take a peek into a 1990s-era New York City.
