Aerial View of Yankee Stadium and the Harlem River, 1933

Aerial View of Yankee Stadium and the Harlem River, 1933

In this photo, the camera looks west from a plane or an airship. Below is Yankee Stadium, empty. In the foreground is the newly built Bronx County Courthouse, designed by Max Hausel and Joseph H. Freedlander, and beyond the stadium is the Harlem River, spanned by the Macomb's Dam Bridge. Not much traffic is on the road or the river. Hardly the New York of today.

Blimps over Lower Manhattan, 1931

Blimps over Lower Manhattan, 1931

United States Navy Airships float over the Lower Manhattan skyline.  The view of this era presents a far different picture than the one of today.  Most of the piers that you see here are gone now.  Even the shape of Manhattan has changed, with the western shore of the island being extended out into the Hudson River with the landfill from the excavation of the World Trade Center.

Blimps over Central Park, 1931

Blimps over Central Park, 1931

An aerial view of Central Park, looking north from about East 72nd Street.  A pair of dirigibles hover above the park.  Below, towards the right, the Metropolitan Museum of Art can be clearly seen.  Also, you can see that the Lower Croton Reservoir is being filled in to make space for the Great Lawn.  Among other material, stones from the building of Rockefeller Center are being used to fill in the obsolete 33-acre receiving reservoir, which held 180 million gallons of water piped in from the Croton River in Westchester.
