    Some small shots of the corner (1936 - 37)

    Using the zoom here's what you'll find from '37 ...

    The NE corner building, much abused, survived into the '90s.

    Here's how it was in '92 ...

    Nearby, again going back in time ...

    Here's the opposite side of Eighth at 42nd, looking west, in 1925.

    The NW corner, pre-Duane Reade (1933 - 36)

    The "Subway Arcade" entrance seen in the middle of that photo led down to a subterranean mezzanine with a warren of record stores and pinball machines.

    A tad sketchy -- but of it's time when I first moved to NYC.

    Amazing to look at that photo and think of it with all the neon that was originally on that corner. It would be great to find a color night time photo circa 1937, but so far no luck.
