Wall and Broad Streets, 1916

Wall and Broad Streets, 1916

Ah, Wall Street. You can almost smell the money -- unless, like the gentleman in the extreme foreground, you have your finger jammed up your nose. On this day in 1916, the photographer captured the bustling activity of New York City's Financial District. Looking west along Wall, on the right you can see Federal Hall, which at the time was the United States Sub-Treasury building, on the left sit the newly-built House of Morgan and the New York Stock Exchange, and straight ahead, beyond Broadway is Trinity Church.

Fans Behind the Yankee Dugout Watch the 1956 World Series at Ebbets Field

The first two games and the last two games of the 1956 World Series, between the arch-rivals the New York Yankees and the Brooklyn Dodgers, were played at Ebbets Field. The Bums from Brooklyn were the defending World Champions, making this a very intense series. Looking into this photograph, you can almost feel the tension of the fans.  They didn't know it then, but this would be the last World Series ever played in the beloved Ebbets Field.

Delancey and Clinton Street Traffic Jam, 1923

Delancy and Clinton Street Traffic Jam, 1923

Imagine coming off the Williamsburg Bridge into this mess at Delancey and Clinton Streets on the Lower East Side.  It's enough to send you right back to Brooklyn.  The traffic jam depicted in this 1923 Black and White photo shows a snarl up of cars, trolleys, and the Third Avenue Rail line.  Even by today's standards this is vehicular congestion of epic proportions.
