Great photos. There's a couple towards the bottom where there are similar colour modern cars in the same spots as there are old cars in the old photos. I wonder if he waited around or just got lucky.

I loved living there, but it's partly because I always end up half hating the place and half loving it! It's a real city of contradictions but never, ever dull!I lived in New York for a couple of months and I'm just thrilled with the town. Definitely the best city in the world!
