Men working on the construction of streetcar tracks at East 42nd Street and Fourth Avenue in 1900.  Fourth Avenue later became known as Park Avenue.  To the right, on the north side of the street, a portion of the facade of Grand Central Station may be seen.  Grand Central Station was the predecessor of the Beaux-Arts style Grand Central Terminal, which opened in 1913 and which occupies the site today.  Many still refer to Grand Central Station, although that building technically only existed for thirteen years, having itself been preceded by Grand Central Depot, which occupied the site from 1871 to 1899.
