I liked the skyline back then better........the gothic & art deco masterpieces were not hidden behind the hastily clad monoliths of the 70's and 80's......

I think these pics show a much better skyline then it is nowadays!


Especially this one! The perfect setting... water... dams.. and it goes slowly up to come to a climax!

I must admit that I like the skyline back then better. New York really used to be a beautiful city... now it's just an awesome city.

New York is a lovely slice of chaos. It never officially started and it will probably never really be finished.

Interesting photos of old New York. Its cool to see old New York and a good reprieve from seeing too many modern New York photos. The Singer Building is now gone and is replaced with One Liberty Plaza.

Best thread ever

These are possibly the best NYC pictures I have ever seen! All of these pictures are awsome and the skyline looked better back then. A lot of buildings that dont get any shine now, stick out in the skyline in their own special way. I especially loved all the aerials!
