Ah to live and breathe in New York City.Â Actually I did it for the last seven years and now that I’m out in the suburbs I gotta say:Â I don’t miss New York City all that much.Â Doesn’t mean I don’t think it’s a fantastic place.Â But when you’re me and you work from home it’s a little nicer to have trees around you and not hearing sirens 24/7.
I do however miss the proximity of things.Â I miss the view from my old apartment.Â Hell I even miss public transportation.Â Actually that’s a complete lie.Â I don’t miss that at all.Â But if there’s one thing I do like about NYC it’s the rich history.Â So much has gone on since settlers first moved that it’s hard to even begin anywhere.
Perhaps a good place to start is in pictures.Â Here are 20 rare historical photos of New York City….
Thanks to Smashing USA for the photos
Even though this kind of a cool picture I can’t help but to think one thing:Â most of these women never groomed.Â Ugh, that’s awful.
