Thompson and Houston Streets, 1929

Thompson and Houston Streets, 1929

Smile for the camera, boys!  Geez, New York was a tough town in 1929, at least if these guys are any indication. We don't know who these men were, posing for a picture on the corner of Thompson and Houston, but it looks like the only time they'd ever been in front of a camera was for a mug shot. Even the two guys with coke-bottle thick glasses look like they'd teach that photographer a lesson if they could see him.

Shoeshine Boys in Little Italy, c. 1900

Shoeshine Boys in Little Italy, c. 1900

In this photo from the turn of the last century, shoeshine boys gather in Columbus Park, in what used to be Little Italy, to play marbles. While their poverty is evident -- one of the boys has no shoes -- they seem like pretty normal kids. Some of them smile charmingly at the camera, while others eye it with suspicion.

NBC Camera Broadcasts 1956 World Series from Ebbets Field

NBC Camera Broadcasts 1956 World Series from Ebbets Field

The NBC camera crew and Brooklyn Dodger fans look on intently at the 1956 World Series.  The 1956 World Series was a rematch of the two great New York rivals, the New York Yankees and the Brooklyn Dodgers.  In 1955, the Dodgers took it -- their first championship in the history of the franchise.  In this series, the Yanks reclaimed their title, beating the Bums in seven games.  This black and white picture, although depicting none of the game, captures all the intensity of the old time rivalry and loyalty of the fans.

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.
