Lower Manhattan seen in 1964.
Old skyline, Singer Building to the right, Home Insurance Building under construction, and the old Steam Corporation building’s chimney.
This brings me to something. I know I’m drifting off topic slightly but this is making me morbidly curious.
Does anyone know what this building is?
I see it in pictures between 1964 and 1987. 75 Wall Street’s plaza occupies the site now. Anyone know what it was or have pics of it?
That footage was incredible. That first shot where the camera zoomed out and the skyline was so much more bare than it is today. Midtown also looked so different from today. Great find Hudson!
Indeed, awesome find. The ESB was truly the king in that time.
Also puts into perspective how massive the city is today that a building like the ESB is just one of many.
just imagine the progress another 50 years from now!
rip singer building. also that editorial that the pic comes from is a pretty good read.
note the doomed 270 Park on the right.
The World Fair in its former glory
The buildings were so dirty.
This is that famed 1962 aerial showing the WTC site, but this time, in color and without the outline.
