Blast From the Past

The Museum of the City of New York has a fascinating collection of historical photos from around the City that sheds light onto life from a bygone era.

Among the photos that caught my attention was the construction of the New York Times headquarters in Times Square (formerly Longacre Square).

It's quite the contrast from what Times Square looks like now. 

The full collection can be viewed here. Photographic collections include works by Jacob Riis.
