    Default A few pics from the 1928 book, "Mid-Manhattan: The Multimillionarea".

    Who knew the Fred French Building was home to so many dance studios in 1928?



    The Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Station in The Chanin Building - I wonder what this space is now?

    ^ I really like the first two . The detailing on Washington Square Arch seems much more clearly defined and prominent in black and white. Thanks Omega.

    BTW: What's that white monstrosity to the right of the fountain in the third photo, with the four grey pointy things?

    From the New York Times Streetscapes article Where Lincoln Tossed and Turned:


    Astor House, built in 1836 and shown here in 1913, was designed by Isaiah Rogers.


    Astor House in 1913


    The Astor House in 1913, when it was halved to make way for an office building. The other half was demolished in the 1920s

    Park Avenue 1957.

    I don't know why, but this photo brings out the Kim Novak in me.

    And I have the strange sensation that I'm being followed.

    -------------------------

    That's the Seagrams building going up over there. And there are a couple of other newbies in the foreground. I guess for some this is a photo of the beginning of the end.

    ^ It was, however, a brave new world.

    Little did we know at the time the harm that would come of it.

    This is Park Avenue and 107th Street circa 1900.

    I guess this is one of those avant-garde conceptual art installations. *Yawn*

    A New England fishing village with NY-style art-deco skyscrapers. Who knew?

    Default The Coliseum

    It's gone now and not lamented, but just for posterity:
