This is a time-lapse exposure of a busy city crowd moving through Grand Central Station.  The effect was created completely in-camera. This photo was taken from the top of my mother’s building on Broadway and 94th street on a hot summer night in June of 2007. Be sure to check out James Maher’s website for a lot more great photographs of New York and beyond. Love the long exposures, and the black and white really capture the grittiness of New York. I love all the shots, especially the ones in Grand Central and with lightning ?? Captivating. Wow – I love all of these shots but that first one seems to come from a movie poster in the 50s. I've never seen this kind of streamlining before, actually, so I wonder what train it was used on. The locomotive in the photograph is one of two streamlined at West Albany for the Empire State Express. I dont have much knowledge of the Hudsons nor there names but to me it doesnt look like it says Empire State Express.
In this picture taken on February 27, 1970, the south tower of the World Trade Center is under construction. In this black and white picture taken by photographer Mal Gurian on February 27, 1970, construction of the north tower of the World Trade Center is substantially under way. In this southward view, we see the North Tower of the World Trade Center under construction. This black and white photograph, taken on June 27, 1969, by photographer Mal Gurian, shows the construction of the Twin Towers.
In this black and white photograph, taken in 1914, we see a man walking beneath the elevated train line at the intersection of Greenwich and Fulton Streets in Lower Manhattan. Always moving: Workers dig in Delancy Street on New York's Lower East Side in this photo dated July 29, 1908. Genesis of a icon: In this June 5, 1908 photo, the Manhattan Bridge is less than a shell, seen from Washington Street. The main concourse of Grand Central Terminal, in New York, is seen from the Campbell apartment in this 1937 photo.
The project was four years in the making, part of the department's mission to make city records accessible to everyone, said assistant commissioner Kenneth Cobb.'We all knew that we had fantastic photograph collections that no one would even guess that we had,' he said. Taken mostly by anonymous municipal workers, some of the images have appeared in publications but most were accessible only by visiting the archive offices in lower Manhattan over the past few years.Researchers, history buffs, filmmakers, genealogists and preservationists in particular will find the digitized collection helpful. New Yorkers cool off in the Astoria public pool with the Hell Gate railroad bridge looming in the background in the summer of 1940. In 1936, the Triborough Bridge, which links Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx, was not yet complete.

See how it's changed: In this circa 1890 photo, a pair of girls walk east along 42nd Street. This circa 1983-1988 photo provided by the New York City Municipal Archives shows 172 Norfolk Street, which is now the Angel Orensanz Foundation, in New York.

I finally got tired of working outside in very remote areas in the dead of winter so I took the job as Bull Cook. Sometimes the guys would be super drunk and open both sides of our bunk cars while the train was moving, pitch dark and they would climb out one door and over the roof and to the other side. We used to have flares that strapped onto the track and we'd place them about a half mile before the area we were working, that way if a train was coming they'd hit the flare and know there was a crew up ahead.
The next morning the museum opened at 9 am and the first trainload of visitors was coming down the track and BOOM! They said the engineer stopped the train and looked the track over for about 10 minutes before continuing. In 1953, the New York City Transit Authority took over the system, and lines continued to develop - although scores were also demolished - throughout the second half of the century. In some of the photographs, stored in the New York Daily News archive, commuters will notice how the service appears to have changed very little.One photo, dated 1989, shows John F. On its feet: In 1931, construction workers are pictured in a compression chamber under the East River (left). Yet others depict a patchy service that would outrage today's travellers, such as one image, which shows a line of passengers clinging to the inside of a tunnel.
Here is an amazing collection of rare photos that shows the life in Jamaica from between 1860s to 1890s. Ever since Queen Victoria wed in 1840, however, white has remained the traditional color for wedding gowns and bouquets. Follow this photographic journey through the lens of local New York photographer, James Maher. The woman seemed to be a lonely tourist waiting for someone to come rescue her.  She was so amazingly still that she looked afraid to even move.
The snowstorm created such bad conditions that for much of the day I was completely lost in the park.
The Gargoyles are probably the most talked about aspect of this classic Art Deco building, but I much prefer the metal spire, which can often be seen glinting like a diamond in the hot sun, or glowing throughout the night.
The Empire State Building may be a bit taller, but it’s not as elegant as shown in your photo.
Dunne Archive includes a unique collection of black and white and color images of the World Trade Center under construction from 1968 through 1973. The south tower in the foreground has made significant progress, but is several month behind its sister tower.

In this shot, we look north past the WTC 2, or the South Tower, which is in the beginning stages of construction, toward WTC 1, the North Tower, which is well under way. There's a lot of detail in this old picture, from the guy getting a nickel shoe shine on the left to the storefronts across the street. The posh apartment, in one of America's grandest train stations, was the playground of financier John Campbell in the roaring 1920. But anyone can search the images, share them through social media or purchase them as prints. We had a small train with a few bunk cars, which always smelled like diesel fuel and a tool car for all our tools, a cook car, dining car and a car for the diesel fuel drums. I used to take 2 or 3 of these flares, remove the gunpowder and place it in a large railway nut with 2 large bolts screwed in on each end (gunpowder in between) I'd throw them from the moving train at rocks and other things and watch them explode. My brother and this friend roomed together in an apartment that bordered the railroad museum in Worthington, OH. In the 1960s, more than $1 trillion was spent to create three tunnels along the Second Avenue and 63rd Street Lines. Soon after this photo, it started to pour and the lightning strikes got close enough that I thought it best to leave. These photos, nearly 3,000 of them, were taken by aerial photographer and wireless technology pioneer Mal Gurian from groundbreaking through the completion of the towers. Beyond the cranes of Koch Steel are the West Side Piers, absent of any hint of the World Financial Center. But perhaps the most intersesting thing about this photograph is that Greenwich and Fulton Streets no longer intersect. They would drag us to a location and we would either walk the track to the worksite or use one of those hand cars where 2 guys pump like crazy to get up to 5mph. These pictures have been collected from different public sources including different websites, considering to be in public domain.If any one has any objection of displaying any picture here, just send us an email and we will remove it immediately, after verification of the claim.
Earlier in the day, it is believed that one of these strikes hit a substation in Queens and was the cause of a blackout in the Bronx and on the Upper East Side, which created a lot of chaos during the 90 degree weather.
The Twin Towers were icons of New York City from the ribbon cutting ceremony on April 4, 1973 until their destruction at the hands of terrorists on September 11, 2001.
The South Tower, which was still in the very early stages of construction, is obscured from view.
Their union was broken in the 1960s when the designers of the World Trade Center carved out a Super-Block in Lower Manhattan.
