The old photographs in this set were taken in 1935 by Berenice Abbott, who documented much of the city at that time; she took them on Broome Street, between West Broadway and Thompson Street. None of the buildings in the photographs she took are there anymore, and has there ever been a building on the corner of Broome and Thompson? In 1935 there wasn't, in 1998 there wasn't, and currently there isn't. Attention developers: virgin land!

Previously: 175 2nd Avenue, and 156 Canal Street.
