Friday, December 10, 2004 Tales from The Big Apple
New York - a city that I long to visit. These telling images from the past and the present only adds up to the aura. It is stunning to see how little things have changed around major landmarks over the years. From the 30's to the turn of the century. For people who have actuallly been to the places, this could be special.
More on NY: The city's underground rapid transit system inaugrated on the 27th of October, 1904 is celebrating its 100th anniversary in a spectacular fashion. By running vintage trains from the 30's, much to the surprise of its users. These trains will run only on the weekends ending on the 19th of Dec. [A roving blogger's photo report!]
+ Vintage subway tea party.

Isnt there some old saying that proclaims, the more the things change, the more they tend to remain the same? Maybe NY is just a proof of that concept.
Tough luck to find some reliable links I can forward..and very likely I am just thinking of the same photos you are talking about, with different angles etc. I will keep an eye out, but am not holding much hope to be able to locate them soon.
Yeah may be.
New York is by far the most fascinating city I have visited in the US. It definitely has a life and attitude of its own. It has to be experienced to be believed. People tell me Chicago is as interesting. I am waiting for a chance to truly experience Chicago. If ever there are other cities that share NYC's magic they are Boston and SFO. But even amongst the lot, NYC is by the far the most interesting.
I can vouch for SFO. Thats about the only place I have visited from your list :) !
Manhattan, taken in by walk, is something altogether amazing...just the sheer throbbing pace of the city. One of the few places where I enjoyed walking around...
Yeah, lovely places.
