I really really miss the time when NYC was New York the city of decent artistic skyscrapers not New York City the city of chopsticking cookie-cutting out of control crazy insane skyscrapers.

I like looking at the old videos too. It's always interesting to see how much has changed, and how much remains the same.

NYC will never be as sexy as it was in the 40s and late 30s.

Looks like its the Lower East Side, right next to Cherry Street. Right where the NYCAH apartments stands or for frame of reference in modern sense, right next to where or within proximity to where One Manhattan Square is rising.

Looks like it could be St Joseph's church on the right side of the picture...

Amazing that when most of these photos were taken the classic 1930s skyscrapers had just been built, yet they seem timeless as if they had stood for hundreds of years

Doesn't exist anymore... the street to the right of the island of tenements in Monroe Street. The street to the left of the island, Hamilton Street, no longer exists.

That's what I thought! This entire area was bulldozed for housing projects in the 1940s.
