East 14th Street and Fourth Avenue, 1916

East 14th Street and Fourth Avenue, 1916

In this black and white photo, taken in 1916, the photographer shoots west along the north side of E. 14th Street.  People stroll past the Hotel Rathskeller. A couple of newsies operate a newstand in front of the entrance to the subway. On the south side of the street, somewhat obscured by the subway kiosks are the Union Square Theater and Cafe Leo. It's somewhat difficult to see, but the ensignia of the Cafe Leo seems to be a C and L inscribed inside a Star of David.

Pennsylvania Station Restaurant, 1910

Pennsylvania Station Restaurant, 1910

In 1910, Pennsylvania Station was the paragon of New York elegance. This restaurant, populated by ghosts thanks to the photograph's long exposure, is a far cry from the fast food joints of today's Penn Station. Not only did one enter the city like a god, one was expected to eat like a human being.
