Fantastic photos. That one of Manhattan from the air is the exact view I had flying into NYC. My first WOW moment.

I wonder which of BrooklynMel's ancestors is in photo 7? :-)

Photo 19 is actually the Hotel Carter :-)

Thanks for sharing with us. In return, here is my all time favorite site for old photos. Not just of NYC, but of course there are some here. Shorpy is indexed by subject, photographer and there is a neat section of early Kodachrome photos as well:

My mom saw the pics and said she remembers pushcarts still being on Bleeker street into the 1950s.

I loved that pic of the Queens side of the Queensborough bridge. I can't believe how spread out everything is!! my grandfather used to talk about how Queens boulevard was nothing but farms when he was a boy. crazy....
