Pennsylvania Station Train Concourse, Clock, and Arch, 1940

This clock in Penn Station was often photographed. It cried out for it, hanging as it did just beyond the darkened archway. Here we see it in the summer of 1940, hanging portentously above a crowd largely composed of men in uniform. They all know war is coming, that it is only a matter of time.

Washington Square Arch, 1905

Washington Square Arch, 1905

The Washington Square Arch was erected to commemorate the centennial of George Washington's inauguration. This is not that arch. This arch was erected in 1892 to replace the temporary plaster and wooden structure which spanned Fifth Avenue just north of the park. In this photo, we are looking at the north face of the permanent marble arch designed by Stanford White. Absent are the two statues of George Washington, which were added in 1918.
