Meet the bros from Psi Upsilon fraternity, posing in their house at the college’s University Heights campus in the Bronx in 1897.

The photo comes from a fascinating historical timeline on New York University’s website.


A bong (or a hookah pipe?), goofy hats, experiments in facial hair—they don’t look that different from the NYU students flocking to downtown pubs and dive bars today!
