New York Then and Now

It's the graceful 40-story Municipal Bldg.,
right by the Brooklyn Bridge. The older
photo was taken in 1904, during its construction. 
Unfortunately, the Verizon building now obscures the
view of this one when you're crossing
from Brooklyn to Manhattan. Oh well.

[This is part of "That's My World" Tuesday.

  1. Love the “before” and “now” photos.

    Can’t get over the fact that it is a century old. Hey, I’m looking forward to checking out your blog into the future at least that long yet. Oh. A hundred years. But I’m sure by then you’ll have your pad retrofitted.

  2. I love it when you post before and now photos. Remember Jack Finney's Time and Again?

  3. I've only had the opportunity for one brief visit to New York. I enjoyed the variety of architecture.

  4. TG -- how prescient you are! (I'm taking SCUBA lessons, btw).

    Bibi -- I love that book! (And the next Then & Now I post will remind you of it even more.)

  5. Another great shot, Alexa. TG's first link reminds me of nightmares I have. Brrrr!

    I have the Paris Then and Now book. LOVE it!
