As terrible as it was, I would love to visit the old school New York. But, hats off to Guillani (sorry if I spelt it wrong) in turning NYC around.

Incredible since it has changed New York! It surprises to see to me what was, always beautiful, but in some images shocking, and now what is, a city very very clean, taken care of, modern, luxurious, etc. The change is impressive that it has had.

The turnaround started well before Guiliani - really under Koch. For example, all the graffitti came off the subway in the early 80s under Koch. The turn around of the Bronx also came under Koch.

Crime dropped dramatically under Guiliani but the increase in the size of the police force was under Dinkins.

Time Square redevelopment started under Kock/Dinkins and then continued under Guiliani.

So Guiliani deserves a LOT of credit, but to be fair NYC was already getting better even without him.

This last photo is great!

It amazes me how awesome it really is a shame about the twin towers that are at the bottom, I think that symbol is going to be irreplaceable, and was the icon of New York without a doubt.

No that was when the image was uploaded to Flickr. Sometimes people forget to note the date the photo was taken and it defaults to when images are uploaded.
