About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Catch of the day

on the lower right rooftop. I spy a sign facing St Paul's Churchyard atop 18 Vesey for Abbey & Imbrie, once the pioneer fishing tackle store of New York City.

NYLS

Just to the left of St. Paul's tower is New York Law School. Nowadays it is located in Tribeca.

"New York Law School was established in 1891 by Columbia College School of Law faculty, students, and alumni who were protesting their trustees’ attempts to dictate the teaching methods used by professors. The central figure in the revolt against Columbia and the subsequent creation of New York Law School was Columbia Law School’s founder, Theodore Dwight, a major figure in the history of American legal scholarship and education."

OMG!

Is that Vito Corleone running across the rooftop?

Sign Painters

There are a couple of dudes on stages painting "The Even ... " high up the side of the building beside the Roebuck's. A newspaper perhaps? The Evening World?

[The answer can be found in the comments here. - Dave]

I see the bottle

Weaver's Dairy, Central Park West. Or could be East.
