I'm a bit perplexed at the Kodak phrase on the awning at the far right. The brand was just about 20 years old in 08.

[And already so ubiquitous that "kodak" and "kodaking" had entered the vernacular as synonymous with snapshot photography. -tterrace]

The beer garden on top of the Astor is a little bit visible. A reminder that before WWI, there was a strong German influence on American culture.
