  1. Sorry to nitpick, but the picture of the guy on the bench on the Brooklyn Promenade has to be much older than 1974.

    For one, One Chase Manhattan Plaza (completed in 1961) is missing. Two, the World Trade Center would be visible, as well as the buildings constructed near the Ferry building in the early 70s (1 New York Plaza, 55 Water St). And three, the Singer Building is visible here, and that was demolished in 1968.

    It’s most likely from the 40s or 50s.
