This is my personal favourite. I love the contrast between the slick clinical financial district merging into the busy market street scene below. You can almost hear the noise of the big city as it was back then.....few car engine noises...the clip-clops of horses.. the sounds of people talking...market men selling their wares...

It's amazing how quickly cars took hold in New York. On pictures from 1905 it's mostly carriages, yet by 1915 there's auto traffic visually equal to that of today.

when i see these photos i get an indscribable feeling, i'll call it the New York effect. Btw if i had a time machine i'd definately go back to New York in the 19-30's - 1940's

Lucky for all of us, photography and now the Internet lets us become time travelers.......oh ! to walk those streets. In a way you can......after a lifetime seeing movies and looking at picture books New York was almost a fantasy...couldn't be real ? yet after a few visits I still see lots of this through the modern changes.....some places you just have to look harder but it's there..well, lot's of it.....shame about the treasures long gone.

That's it. AIG is the best skyscraper ever built. I actually like it better than ESB/Chrysler.

Now this is a fact...You can't make any new pictures of Old New York. Photography before digital was taken by a few..not the masses.....yet we are lucky to see past times. There must be a million pics taken on Manhattan each day now ?
