Photos of New York: past and present

I recently discovered these amazing photos of New York dating back from 1920 to 1960 for the black and white prints and color ones for the most recent.

You’ll see the difference between “now and then” with New York landmarks such as Columbus Circle, Grand Central, Central Park, the High Line, the Financial District, the Twin Towers, the Brooklyn Bridge and more…

Here’s a little present of New York from past to present!!! 🙂 🙂
