Drop whatever you are doing and go check out the Charles W. Cushman archive. They've got a series of New York City photographs from the 1940s and 1950s that will literally blow your socks off. It's all there- from the Old Fulton Market pictures above, Wall Street, the Waterfront, LES, more LES, Pearl Street, the East Village, and 42nd Street. All beautifully notated. Gothamist hopes that in fifty years, people will look back on the archives of the New York City photoblogs and feel a similar sense of wonder.
