Camera as time machine in NYC
In 1939 famed photographer Berenice Abbott published a classic book of New York City images called Changing New York.
Some 75 years later photographer Douglas Levere decided to rephotograph the sites, waiting for the weather, season and angle of the sun to match, so that all that differed was the city's evolution. The book
presenting the pictures side-by-side was noted here
previously. But after it was mentioned
on AskMe recently I noticed cool new stuff: 120+ pictures from the book free for the surfing here,
and what is apparently its biggest public display to date, at the Museum of the City of New York.
