Ah to live and breathe in New York City. Actually I did it for the last seven years and now that I’m out in the suburbs I gotta say: I don’t miss New York City all that much. Doesn’t mean I don’t think it’s a fantastic place. 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. I miss the view from my old apartment. Hell I even miss public transportation. Actually that’s a complete lie. I don’t miss that at all. But if there’s one thing I do like about NYC it’s the rich history. 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. 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: most of these women never groomed. Ugh, that’s awful.
