New York Rises

NYC Traffic Jam, near Williamburg Bridge, 1923 by Eugene de Salignac

103 Clinton Street, 1908, NYC, by Eugene de Salignac

There's a very, very cool exhibit going on at the Museum of the City of New York, people. It's called New York Rises, and it features wonderful photography by Eugene de Salignac. De Salignac captured images of nascent buildings and bridges which defined this town and help it grow (De Salignac worked for the city in it's Department of bridges/plant and Structures Dept), as well as the life of the everyday New Yorker (traffic jams and side streets). Make sure you visit soon; show goes through September 4.
You can see more of De Salignac's photos here.
