The Chrysler and Empire State Building were in serious need of cleaning back then. Just look at how badly grimed Chrysler's ornamental top was. Can't believe there was a point in time that people almost didn't care about it at all.

As long as coal and low-grade heating oil were still being burned to heat buildings the sootfall would have just dirtied the towers again. I remember buildings in the 70s that were completely blackened with soot before people began cleaning them. Even today, the mortar between bricks on the Chrysler Building facade is still discolored by soot.



It's easy to date old photos of NYC by which buildings were still light in color before they were sooted.

with so much change, it's hard to believe there's a lot of the same over 70 years ago

Manhattan had so many industries then. New York was clearly progressing faster than any city in the world then. I'm just surprised though at how different Brooklyn progressed from Manhattan
