New York City is Endlessly Fascinating....

NYC looking from the southeast, not the usual direction. Brooklyn/Queens is dead center. You can just see my hometown, Manhasset, lower right.

Union Square randommusings.filminspector.com
Terrific shot of Union Square ca. 1910. Unbelievably, it still looks just like this, with only a few subtractions of horrible glass nothing buildings on the left/west side of the park.

This shot also was taken in 1910, and is on the other side of Union Square Park. While the layout remains the same, the buildings are completely different now.Note all the film-related signs, this was the year when 'Hollywood' left 14th Street and headed to California.

The Park Slope air disaster. On Dec 16, 1960 two airliners collided over NYC. This child was the only survivor. He died the next day.
