if you have a few minutes this slide show is very cool. Even some color enhanced photos from that time. Good stuff.

Really nice. I can spend hours looking at those vintage photographs. There are so many places that were once part of the NYC landscape that are no longer there. Also its fun to see the places that are still there after all those years.

I work on Broadway near Wall Street. My building is called the Equitable Building, and has been there since the early 20th century. Although my office space is modernized, I still wonder who worked on my floor so many decades ago.

Great shot of the Polo Grounds. I can picture Bobby Thomson's home run going over the wall by the left field foul pole.
