Usually when we look at side by side comparisons of how a certain city street looked back in the day, versus now, there's a lot of change. However, the intersection of Brooklyn Avenue and Pacific Street in Brooklyn seems to have stayed the same for quite some time (even if realtors are aiming to call the neighborhood Pro Cro these days). The old photo here is from March 18th, 1901, and here we are 110 years later and nothing has changed... except, you know, it looked so nice and new and clean back then.

The photo was taken by photographer Wallace G. Levison, who (at least by 1915) was living at 23 Lafayette Street, about a 40 minute walk from where he took this photo.

Currently a two bedroom apartment in this area of Crown Heights is going for around $1500 at that intersection.
