Bowery and Canal Street, 1929

Bowery and Canal Street, 1929

February 11, 1929 looks like it was a pleasant day on the Lower East Side. The Twenties were still Roaring, with the stock market crash still 8 months away, and these New Yorkers were going about their business, hustling along the snowless streets, on foot, in cars, or on streetcars, or riding above it all on the open air trains of the Third Avenue Elevated. Elsewhere in the world, Benito Mussolini and the Pope's representative were signing the Lateran Pact, giving the Vatican autonomy from Italy, and former Brooklynite and Bowery Boy Al Capone was planning the St.

Aerial Overview of the George Washington Bridge, 1957

Aerial Overview of the George Washington Bridge, 1957

The river is smooth and the traffic is minimal on this bright winter day in 1957. If it weren't for the distinctive Pallisades of the Jersey side, the low-rise buildings of Washington Heights would be indistinguishable from those of Fort Lee, across the river.

Fifth Avenue and Washington Square North, 1930

Fifth Avenue and Washington Square North, 1930

To photograph this street scene from the winter of 1930, the photographer stood in Fifth Avenue, his back to Washington Square Park, and aimed his camera north. From his point of view, it was probably an unremarkable winter morning. Traffic flowed in both directions, pedestrians went about their business, and off in the distance the 14th Street Traffic Tower ensured that everyone kept moving along. For us, however, this photograph is a remarkable moment in time. The cars, the style of dress, and the Traffic Tower itself are all artifacts of a New York City that is no more.

Flatiron Building After a Snowstorm, 1906

Flatiron Building After a Snowstorm, 1906

A cold winter morning in 1906. The Flatiron building rises up beyond the barren trees and the silhouttes of intrepid New Yorkers out walking. No streetcars can be seen. Only the legs of people and horses seem able to traverse the snow covered streets outside Madison Square Park.

Lexington Avenue and East 65th Street, 1930

Lexington Avenue and East 65th Street, 1930

In this black and white photo from the winter of 1930, we see an almost traffic-free Lexington Avenue. A streetcar rolls past St. Vincent Ferrer Church, a taxi idles on the corner of 65th Street, and a couple of women saunter past Allison's Drug Store.

The Flatiron Building after a Snow Storm, 1906

The Flatiron Building after a Snow Storm, 1906

In this view south from East 26th Street and Fifth Avenue, the Flatiron Building looks like it is plowing through the snow. It looks like a substantial amount of fresh snow has blanketed the city, all of which has been shoveled by hand. The streets are as clear as they are likely to get until the hooves of the horses tramp it into slush. But luckily for us, some anonymous photographer captured the clean beauty of this moment forever.

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.

Flatiron Building with Horse and Carriage in the Snow, 1910

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.
