Awesome pic of the Verrazano Bridge construction in 1965. I like seeing how the span joins together at the caisson.

18-20 w 8th St in 1915. The group of buildings still exist and recently went through some renovation and cleanup. One interesting building is the darker one towards the back. When the other buildings were worked on, this one was left out of the work. About a year after the work was done around 2009, the owner finally redid that building to match the rest of the block.

The Manhattan bank of the East river in 1935. This is looking south from the Queensboro Bridge. In the 1940s and 50s, the land would be reshaped by the FDR Highway which starts from Battery Park and links to the Triborough Bridge.

Wonderful view of the American Surety building in 1931. I like the way Trinity Church is silhouetted against 1 Wall Street. The cute tiny building between the two towers has been torn down and replaced by a nondescript tower.
