Metropolis

Most of those buildings are gone now, but the Bank of the Metropolis is still there, and has gone through several incarnations as a restaurant. It has always been a really nice restaurant, whatever the incarnation.

The day began chilly

Then warmed up, and the cabbies were grateful the city had provided coat racks.

[Interestingly, however, just about everyone (including the horses) in this series of photos at the LOC is well bundled up, often in overcoats and gloves. - tterrace]

Two years and counting

Maybe Superman didn't like where the Bank of the Metropolis was located? It appears the building has been unoccupied since 1903 for this 1905 photo.

Seems Mr. horsey

has his eye on a little snack.
