About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

70 Pine street

70 Pine street (AIG) building looks awesome. Always loved that slender tower.

Heartland Brewing

The two-toned color building that is immediately behind the one-story wooden building is still standing (the color is a bit different, but the windows and general look and feel of the building are the same.)

The first floor of the building contains the Heartland Brewing Company, which has some fine craft-made beers and BBQ.

Behold - what Seagrams has wrought!

Concerning the 2007 shot that is. Yeah - look at all them elegant glass towers - not an improvement by a long shot. Boring I says and that's the word of a native New Yorker. Give me a Art Deco ziggurat any day of the week!!

Larry's Beer Garden

Looks like Larry hadn't taken the place over yet.

Another great photo

Having grown up next to the Hudson River and looking at this photo, I can almost smell the water.

In 2007

Here's the scene today, from a Picasa web album (not mine).
