Being a fan of black and white photography — and I am — I found a site I enjoyed mucho. It’s called New York Changing, and is chock full of old photos of Gotham alongside re-shootings of the same area now.
I’ve not yet scolled through all the photos, but they are wonderful, and really tell a great deal about the growth of New York. In some photo pairings, there’s little change. In others, the change is so dramatic that it’s easy to question if the photos are of the same place.
Cool stuff, and well worth looking at.
