Aerial Overview of the Statue of Liberty and Upper New York Bay, 1956

Aerial Overview of the Statue of Liberty and Upper New York Bay, 1956

The Statue of Liberty stands at the entrance to New York Harbor, welcoming all to the land of liberty. Looking past her, you can see a string of barges heading into the harbor and an Ocean Liner heading out. Beyond them are the Lower Manhattan Skyline and the East River bridges. The golden age of transatlantic sailing  was coming to an end by this time, and the era of jet travel was about to begin.

Ebbets Field Rotunda Entrance, 1950

Ebbets Field Rotunda Entrance, 1950

Charlie Ebbets acquired adjacent parcels of land in Flatbush over several years until he had enough space to build a stadium. Construction of Ebbets field began in 1912, and the Brooklyn Dodgers played their first exhibition game in Ebbets Field against rivals the New York Yankees on April 5, 1913. The stadium was the home of the Dodgers until their move to L.A. at the end of the 1957 season. At the time of this photo, the Dodgers were in the midst of a series of good years. Although they didn't win the pennant in 1950, they did in 1947, 1949, 1952, 1953, 1955, and 1956.

Main Entrance of Grand Central Terminal, 1914

Main Entrance of Grand Central Station, 1914

Seen from this angle Grand Central Terminal is indeed the cathedral of transportation it was intended to be. This photo was taken not long after GCT entirely replaced Grand Central Station, which was torn down in phases between 1903 and 1913. The perspective here is approximately eye-level with Mercury, who anchors the statue "Transportation," which faces south at East 42nd Street and Park Avenue.
