New York City from the air, October 6, 1928

This stunning image taken from high altitude on a clear day shows busy ship traffic on the Hudson and East Rivers. It was taken in the middle of the skyscraper building boom of the late 1920s and early 1930s, but before many of the landmark buildings of Manhattan were built. The large rectangle of Central Park is clear in this image. The Brooklyn, Manhattan, Williamsburg, Queensboro, and Hell’s Gate Bridge sare seen spanning the East River. The Triborough Bridge was not started until 1929. On the Hudson, the George Washington Bridge was started in 1927, but it was not opened until 1931. The Little Red Lighthouse, where the GW Bridge now touches Manhattan, can be seen in this image.
