Thanks for these pics!

The Empire State Building had been completed only 31 years in 1962. No wonder it has sort of a newer look in the photos. My first trip to NYC was in 1966 when I was a kid. I remember how dark and dingy so many buildings looked. When I returned in 1989, I could tell that many buildings had been cleaned and looked a lot better. The streets were cleaner as well, as were the subways. I'm way overdue for another visit.
