In this shot, taken on March 5, 1915, we look north along the track from East 41st Street toward the platforms at 42nd Street with a southbound local in the distance.

East 42nd Street and Second Avenue, c. 1932

Looking west along Forty-Second Street from Second Avenue, you can see the Third Avenue Elevated Line and, beyond it, the Chrysler Building. The street is quiet, with only a few cars parked at the curb and a few pedestrians in winter coats walking briskly past the City Coffee Pot. The newly-constructed Daily News Building is on the left, just beyond the Coffee Pot.
