Cool coat!

I want that coat!

The Age of Innocence

This photo reminds me of the winters from my childhood. Truly one of the most touching photos from the Detroit Publishing Company.

Another world

Central Park was designed with sunken carriageways so that the buildings of the city weren't visible to visitors in search of a bucolic escape from city life. The appearance of skyscrapers changed that of course, but in 1900 much of the horizon must have still been uninterrupted by manmade structures.

Cedar Hil?

I ran in the park this morning, which has a nice coat of snow, so it was funny coming to Shorpy and seeing this shot of basically the same spot I ran (if I identified it correctly), 115 years ago.

This seems like the East Side path around 79th Street below Cedar Hill, but the lack of landmarks like a bridge give me pause.
