Lou Gehrig, 1938

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.

The San Remo Apartments, seen from Central Park, 1932

The San Remo Apartments, seen from Central Park, 1932

The San Remo Apartment building, with its twin tower construction, epitomizes Upper West Side luxury. Construction began in 1929 and completed shortly before this photograph was taken in 1932. Many of the larger apartments had to be subdivided during the Great Depression to make them more affordable to renters. Since then, the New York real estate market has changed dramatically, and now the San Remo is amongst the most expensive locations in Manhattan, housing many wealthy business tycoons and celebrities.

The Photographer on Bow Bridge, 1875

The Photographer on Bow Bridge, 1875

In this 1875 photograph, the photographer himself is the subject. He stands on Bow Bridge in Central Park above a placid lake, which reflect both him and the bridge. The leaves on the trees are sparse, indicating that this could be late fall or early spring. The image almost has an Impressionistic quality, as if the photographer were trying to mimic the work of Monet.

Flatiron Building with Horse and Carriage in the Snow, 1910

New York City can be a winter wonderland. This black and white photograph of the Flatiron Building in the winter of 1910 conjures all the magic of those snowy landscapes of yesteryear. Can you hear the jinglebells ringing? The only thing wrong with this picture is the two horse carriage instead of the one horse open sleigh.
