Amazing picture. would love to see more of 5th avenue back in the day. thanks for sharing
The New York Public Library has a great set of photos of NYC from the 1870s-1970s. For example, here's 5th Ave 7 16th Street: http://digitalgallery.nypl.org/nypldigital/id?702395F
i love the historic photos, but it's incomplete without the present-day view from the exact(or closest) spot. it would be nice to compare the then and now side-by-side.
