Shocking! Is This What New York Looked Like When You Where Born?


Related: New York

This is my favourite travel article of the week. New York fascinates me. From the age of construction to the chaos of the 1970’s and 1980’s, when the city was a place of illicit activities, with drug dealers and prostitutes working openly around Times Square. Today’s New York offers a much more sanitised environment with luxury apartments and the lofty reputation of being one of the world’s most important commercial, financial and cultural centres. But what a transformation!

With a picture from each year, you can see what the city looked like the year you were born and also the years before and after. Fascinating stuff!
