Seventh Avenue and West 29th Street, 1915

Seventh Avenue and West 29th Street, 1915

Streetcars rumble down Seventh Avenue, past horse-drawn carts and seemingly all male pedestrians.  Looking a couple of blocks north, on the west side of the street, one can see the columns of the Pennsylvania Station, which opened in 1910. The buildings look like a mixture of street-level store fronts and upper story residences.

Grand Central Depot, 1885

Grand Central Depot, 1885

There have been three structures at East 42nd Street and Park Avenue, bearing the name Grand Central. In this black and white photograph taken about 1885, we see the first one, Grand Central Depot. This station, which opened in 1871, brought the lines of the New York Central and Hudson River Railroad, the New York and Harlem River Railroad, and the New York and New Haven Railroad together under one roof. In this view, looking north from Vanderbilt Avenue, we see horse-drawn streetcars and carts ambling past.

Lou Gehrig, 1938

Lou Gehrig, the Iron Horse, played his entire 17-year career for the New York Yankees. In this black and white photograph, we see Lou at batting practice, in 1938 toward the end of his career. Gehrig retired in 1939 at the age of 36, having been stricken with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), now often called Lou Gehrig's Disease. During his career, he set several records, most famously for playing 2,130 consecutive games, a record that was unbroken for 56 years.
