Unbelievable that there were such futuristic looking skyscrapers so long ago.

Even in the late 60s Lower Manhattan looked much more impressive than nowadays.

The cereal box looks surprisingly good in that mix, considering Chase Manhattan is one of my least favorite skyscrapers of all time.

In what sense?

In many ways, I like the pre-WW2 NYC better than the modern one. As I do for many other big cities all around the globe.
I'm not fond of modernist, boxy architecture.

But what makes you assume it was more impressive in the late 60s?

Great thread, would also like to see old tourist broschures and maps of NY.

I don't think many people even had a camera in the early 60's. But these pictures are good. Does someone know what type of cameras were used ?

I'm pretty sure that most families had a camera in the 60s
