ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!! :blink: Thanks so much for taking the time (I know it took a while) to put these up for the world to see! A most excellent historical tour of New York City. Where did you manage to find all of these?

Awesome pics! To this day it still amazes me that they demolished the Singer Building. That was a mistake, but there's nothing we can do about it now.
