Vintage New York Photographs

The New York was worth watching between 1920 to 1960. A glimpse of the vintage pictures, take you down into the bygone era, an era that was classic, traditional yet glitzy even after those black-and-white memoirs the people had with them.

Those black-and-white photographs still remind us of how the Americans always paid attention to the wonderful architecture and the marvelous construction of their skyscrapers. It displayed their advanced thought-process and progressive approach in various fields.

The skyscrapers surely remind of the Spiderman series, with no reflective glass elevations but with false sky intervals along with the presence of overly done stone walls. The active night clubs, the subtle smells from the Jewish restaurants also used to add color to the citizen’s lives.

What is more fascinating is the way the old postcards and preserved pictures simply provide a beautiful insight into the amazing history of this beautiful city in the traditional landscape.

The Hudson Terminal Building, one of the largest office buildings in the world, was massively built covering 2 square blocks, making the WTC towers stand upright on this space later. In fact, majority of these skyscrapers are more than a century old, and are still standing tall and high compared to the structures in different places.

The yesteryear architecture too has its own appeal with contemporary landscape.
