Park Avenue and East 85th Street, 1929

Park Avenue and East 85th Street, 1929

Late April, 1929, and Park Avenue, looking south from East 85th, doesn't seem remarkably different from today. The street had yet to be widened, and clusters of brownstones still peppered the avenue, but the luxury highrises were already the order of the day. According to the sign in the lower right, 1021 Park Avenue was being constructed as a "100% Cooperative Apartment."

Broadway and West 96th Street, 1909

Broadway and West 96th Street, 1909

In this black and white photo, taken in April of 1909, we look northeast along the east side of Broadway.  People move like ghosts through the frame, while a streetcar rumbles north along its tracks, and an early automobile shudders past a street cleaner.

Boys in Front of 14th Street Theater, 1916

Boys in Front of 14th Street Theater, 1916

These boys, just exiting a the Fourteenth Street Theater, look like they are having the time of their lives. It's a beautiful spring day, April 30, 1916 to be exact, and nothing could be better than seeing an auto-racing movie and then palling around New York City with your chums. It's unlikely any of these boys knew or cared, but the theater they just exited had only recently become the "Downtown Home of Paramount Pictures." It had been built in 1866 as the Theater Francais and originally staged French comic operas.
