Pennsylvania Station at Night, c. 1922

Pennsylvania Station at Night, c. 1922

What have we lost? Prior to the establishment of the Landmarks Commission, many wonderful buildings were torn down in the name of progress. Perhaps none was a greater loss than the original Penn Station. In this exterior night shot, it looks a worthy successor to the Roman monuments it was meant to evoke.

Man in a Suit Approaches Dodgers at First Night Game, 1938

Look carefully at the man in the suit, who is approaching a couple of the Brooklyn Dodgers in this photo of the historic first night game ever played at Ebbets Field. Could it be Babe Ruth? He's certainly built like the Bambino. Plus, we know the Babe was at this game. He drew a large enough crowd that Larry MacPhail noticed and made him an offer of $15,000 a year to coach first base.

The Brooklyn Dodgers loss to the Cincinnati Reds on June 15, 1938 was historic for two reasons. The game was played at night, for the first time ever at Ebbets Field. The game was also the second consecutive no-hitter pitched by the Red's Johnny Vander Meer.

Ebbets Field, Brooklyn, June 21, 1938

Ebbets Field, Brooklyn, June 21, 1938

The Brooklyn Dodgers take the field in the second night game ever played in their beloved Ebbets Field. On the extreme right of this black and white image, we see the great Babe Ruth suited up as the Dodgers' first base coach. Ruth signed on three days earlier for $15,000 per year, anxious just to be back in the game and, he hoped, have a shot at managing the Dodgers the following season. Leo Durocher, long time "frenemy" from their Yankee days, ultimately took the helm of the Brooklyn team.

Second Night Game Ebbets Field, June 21, 1938

Second Night Game Ebbets Field, June 21, 1938

It's June 21, 1938, and in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn, the Bums, the Brooklyn Dodgers are playing the Pittsburgh Pirates in the second ever night game in Ebbets Field. Babe Ruth attended the first night game on June 15, and the crowd loved him so much, that Larry MacPhail hired him as the first base coach. In this old picture, taken by a fan at the game, we see the Sultan of Swat, standing by the first base line wearing his new Dodger uniform.

Times Square At Night, 1932

Times Square At Night, 1932

Times Square becomes magical at night when all the lights go on and the city begins to glow. On this wet night in 1932, the streets themselves glisten. The neon beckons you, almost commands you, buy Pepsodent (you'll wonder where the yellow went), drive a Chevy, see the Barrymores bring Rasputin and Empress to life. Afterwards you can have a cup of Maxwell House, smoke a Chesterfield, and now that you're all revved up again catch the late showing of Wallace Beery in Flesh.

Columbus Circle at Night, c. 1920

Columbus Circle at Night, c. 1920

The silhouetted hansom cab and driver look like they could be cruising for a fare in Victorian London, but this is a rainy night in post-war (the Great War, that is) New York.  The driver, parked along a slick, deserted Central Park South, looks west toward the bustle and lights of Eight Avenue and Columbus Circle.  The dark monument to Columbus stands in sharp contrast to the luminance of the surrounding commerce.

Chrysler Building at Dusk, 1950

Chrysler Building at Dusk, 1950

View southeast toward the Chrysler Building on East 42nd Street and Lexington Avenue.  A flourescent lancet crown tops this Manhattan landmark, which opened in 1931.  Designed by architect William Van Alen, this Art Deco masterpiece was the tallest building in the world for eleven months, before being surpassed by the Empire State Building.  In this photo, its majesty is unrivaled.
