Absolutely Amazing! I'm glad this was preserved and found intact. There's the Second Ave El at Queensboro Bridge and 59th st, Radio Row along 42 st street, the 6th Ave El, and the 9th ave El at construction along the tracks of the Pennsylvania Railroad at Penn Station, and on the original platforms of Penn Station all marred up by that ugly monstrosity called Madison Square Garden today. And then you have the construction of the Chrysler Building; the Empire State Building would not begin construction until 1930. Just wonderful for this 66 year old die-in-the-wool New Yorker!
