i know what you mean, but still, a city can't stay a museum - progress is the essence. i think the mix of old and new is great, the only problem i got are some fat boxes located in lower manhattan. they are very unappealing to the eye, and the lack of dominating towers (i.e. supertalls) makes it even worse. i just can't wait till 1WTC finally makes its presence known from everywhere.

btw, i just noticed something: ny's first supertall (by roof): ESB, 1931. ny's latest supertall: 1WTC 2013. dear lord, what a timeline.

Wow, what a photo. It really solidifies how legendary pre-war Manhattan was. Immigrants must have felt they had arrived in a city of the gods back in those days. Supreme architecture.

What a great shot! The aircraft is most likely the prototype of the Douglas DC-4, which first flew in 1938. Picture was most likely taken in 1938/'39.

^You sure do know your planes.... I wonder what would the city look like if they did leave manhattan in its pre-war state and zoned all new skyscrapers to outer boroughs....

...I know this was posted a year ago, but it's pretty cool. I'd like to see more of this before and after stuff. Maybe there are some intrepid photographers in NY that could provide same!

Yeah that last one must be from after 1908. The Eastman Collection site has struggled with dates on their holdings.

That aptmt complex on 65th St, 3rd Ave to 2nd Ave really stands out-- must be new?

From ( I assume ) the George Washington bridge. 1937.


Building the Empire State Building. 1931.


Delancey Street 1907.


1964.


Lusitania in New York 1907. The ship was later torpedoed and sunk by the Germans in 1915.
