FOURTEENTH STREET, THEN AND NOW

The top photo shows 14th Street, New York City, looking west from 3rd Avenue, about 1905. The shot was probably taken from the platform of the 3rd Avenue "El." This photo appears in the second section of Chapter 4 of TMAAP. The bottom photo shows the same view, which I took in November, 2002. Almost nothing has stayed the same. Whole blocks seem to have been cleared away to accommodate redevelopment.
