New York City from the photographer's viewfinder: then and now.
We wish it were easier to photograph with black and white film these days (otherwise, we’d still do it!) It’s amazing to see the side by side comparison of how we take pictures today vs. 68 years ago. These photos show how New York’s iconic landmarks, including Rockefeller Center, Central Park, and St. Patrick’s Cathedral were photographed in 1951 and now in 2019. Maybe one day our smart phones will look as “vintage” as these old-school cameras. See the photo story at www.nytimes.com.
