Geeze, very very early 20th century pictures of NY. Subway trains, cars and bikes still used. I believe other parts of the world have no idea what they are!?

The true ''Goldern Age'' of city building, Dubai can only wish to be that enchanting and ominous at the same time.
New York City in the 30's was/is the ultimate built city environment, Heaven on Earth for people like us....

Yes and don't forget New York was a world and probably the universe ever fastest growing city in humankind! Grew more than 1million in 10 years time between 1890 and 1900!

i dont know how to quote pictures - but i cant believe the picture showing THE FLATIRON DISTRICT how impressive. it looked better then than it does now! i had no idea that part of town was covered in lights. Its so sad to say though - has any1 been to new york city? its becoming such a big fat tourist trap the only places left are downtown districts but even they are being encroached

i think everyone who likes skyscrapers idealizes 1930s NY
