NYC: Back in the Day: Photographs; Allison Coast - Clar 209 Sum 1

I would love to go to New York City someday. The city has always interested me, but I don't know if I could ever do it - I come from a very tiny town and can't handle Buffalo half of the time. But NYC is definitely on my bucket list.

McGraw Hill Building, Berenice Abbott, 1936, From the collection of: Museum of the City of New York
The name of this photograph, which is the name of the building, is what caught my eye. McGraw Hill publishes many of the books we use for our classes, and I thought this was a neat picture.
Rockefeller Center from 444 Madison Avenue, Berenice Abbott, 1937, From the collection of: Museum of the City of New York
I would love to visit Rockefeller Center someday. I thought this work of art of Rockefeller Center was neat, considering that the building itself is full of art and history.
Manhattan Bridge, Looking Up, Berenice Abbott, 1936, From the collection of: Museum of the City of New York
The perspective of this photo is what really caught my eye and enticed me into it. It makes you feel as if you are the one standing right next to it, realizing how big the bridge really is.
Bread Store, Berenice Abbott, 1937, From the collection of: Museum of the City of New York
Bread was five cents. FIVE CENTS!!! This photo makes me wish that I lived in this time, not because things were "cheap," but because people worked hard and were more appreciative of what they had.
Milkwagon and Old Houses, Berenice Abbott, 1936, From the collection of: Museum of the City of New York
It's a horse and carriage - what's not awesome about it? I've always loved them.
