My pleasure! I'm glad I found them

I was pretty sure that Chrysler shot would be popular. It's a first for me too.

Does anyone have pictures of the old 42nd Street between 7th and 8th Avenues, especially at night with all the movie marques blazing? I've tried to find this shot, but have not been successful. The old 42nd Street of the 70's and 80-'s was the pits, but there were 15 or 16 theatres on that one little block, and it was kind of neat to stand in the middle of the street and see all of them lit up.

Awesome! Love the old pix! NYC was even more exciting 60-70 years ago...It was the only truly great city outside Europe at that time...

I have to agree..somehow New York had a much more attractive looking skyline then. Today they are some bold boxy skyscrapers...imho spoils the city skyline. You can construct modern scrapers and still have them respect the old and fit in well. That is not the case with most modern scrapers now.
