David Sarnoff's NBC-TV Introduction at the 1939 World's Fair in New York— April 20th, 1939 as shot for the newsreels of the day. - When the 1939 World’s Fair opened in Flushing Meadows, The President of the Radio Corporation of America, David Sarnoff was there to share the spotlight with President Franklin D. Roosevelt and New York City’s Mayor, Fiorello LaGuardia. There he announced, via a single mobile NBC television camera unit, connected from a coaxial cable to a transmitting van, which was placed fifty feet from the speakers’ platform, that NBC TV was ready to go on the air. In the background, it showed the Fair’s symbols—The Trylon and the Perisphere, swept across the Court of Peace, panned the gathering throng, and captured the arrival of the president’s motorcade. This same camera captured the first television close-up. Mayor La Guardia, who was never the bashful sort, casually strode up and ogled it, face to face.

Rare image of the Rockefeller Center Building, Manhattan, New York City, June 1940. - Rockefeller Center was named after John D. Rockefeller, Jr., who leased the space from Columbia University in 1928 and developed it beginning in 1930.

Although, John D. Rockefeller Jr. spent most of his life engaged in philanthropy, his single, defining business venture was the creation of the “city within a city”. Constructed during the Great Depression’s worst years, the project gainfully employed over 40,000 people. It was the largest private building project ever undertaken in modern times. Construction of the 14 buildings in the Art Deco style began on May 17, 1930, and the buildings were completed and opened in 1939. Radio City Music Hall was completed in December 1932. At the time, it was the largest and most opulent theater in the world. The Music Hall seats 6,000 people and after an initial slow start became the single biggest tourist destination in the city. Its interior was declared a New York City landmark in 1978. Painstakingly restored in 1999, the Music Hall interiors are one of the world’s greatest examples of Art Deco design.

The 5th Avenue Stage in 1900, just a year or two before the horses became obsolete - You wouldn't see these magnificent (if dangerous) horse carriages galloping up and down Fifth Avenue much longer at the time this photo was taken. 1900 was the year that the NY State Senate approved a bill allowing the Fifth Avenue Stage to run automobiles along the length of its newly-extended route. By 1903, the horse carriages had been retired for "motor buses." This was a relief to the residents of the apartment blocks near the "big stable" of the Fifth Avenue Stage located uptown. The stables took up the whole block between 88th and 89th Streets, were four stories tall, and housed over 250 horses. Its neighbors were continually filing complaints with the city because of the "noxious odors", as well as perpetual stamping and neighing of horses in their stalls, which made sleep impossible. {Picture from Detroit Publishing Company}

[Photo Carousel] How the other half lives - Photographed by Jacob Riis, these photos shows the terrible living conditions of the flood of immigrants in the 1880s responding to the US’s need for for more laborers. He came to America with no more than $40. He eventually got a job as a police reporter. But, he did spend time in the slums. While he was in the slums, he decided he would start writing to inform people about the poor living conditions he and many other immigrants were living in. At first, he wrote many articles for the New York Sun newspaper and included detailed sketches of where he was living, because a regular photograph would not show up because it was too dark. However, in 1887, flash photography was invented. Jacob Riis was able to get a flashbulb camera so he could take better pictures. He took pictures of child labor, orphans, the filth, the lack of space, and all of the unsanitary people. He decided to compile all of these photos into a book, where he described what life was like for him and the people he was living with. He named this book “How the Other Half Lives.” He published this book to get the attention of the upper and middle classes to show them how they were suffering, and it worked. After the book was published, it became very popular. Many people who were in better living conditions saw this and were shocked at how these new immigrants had been living. His new book caught the attention of many people and ended up bringing change to how they lived. Laws were passed that prevented people from living in such unsanitary places. His book helped bring change and started a new type of reporting called “muckraking” and helped start the spark of the Progressive Era. This brought change to the immigrants and forever changed their living conditions.

View of Broad Street, looking north from Beaver Street, looking at the Bankers Trust Company Building, Lower Manhattan, New York City, 1917. {Picture from the New York Historical Society Collection}

14 Wall Street: The concept behind the building's design was to place the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus on top of St Mark's Campanile in Venice. Many early skyscrapers took the Venetian bell-tower as a logical model for a modern office tower, but 14 Wall Street was the first to top it off with a temple in the sky, a seven-story stepped pyramid modeled on one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Bankers Trust, for whom the building was constructed, then adopted the pyramid as its trademark, and took as its slogan "A Tower of Strength". The first stage of construction, 1910–1912, was marked by the demolition of a 20-story Gillender Building, claimed to be the first skyscraper demolished to make way for a taller skyscraper. It was completed in 1912 and is 539 feet (164 m) tall with 37 floors. In its day the world's tallest bank building, the skyscraper originally housed the headquarters of Bankers Trust, which was founded in 1903 when a number of commercial banks needed a vehicle to enter the trusts and estates market; fourteen years later it became a full-service bank, and one of the country's wealthiest financial institutions. The bank occupied only the three lower floors; its main operations were housed elsewhere in less expensive offices. Most of the remainder of the building was rental property.

New Packard ambulance in front of the Knickerbocker Hospital located at 70 Convent Avenue (prev. Amsterdam Ave.) corner of West 131st Street in Harlem, Manhattan, New York City, 1934. - It was an historical hospital that served primarily poor and immigrant patients. Founded in 1862 as the Manhattan Dispensary, it served as a temporary Civil War tent facility for returning Union Army invalids. In 1885 the New York Times praised its rebirth as the fully equipped Manhattan Hospital, "the only general hospital north of Ninety-ninth street." The hospital assumed the city's largest ambulance district for many decades and became a forerunner in treatments for polio, alcoholism and gynecological care. Manhattan Hospital was renamed the J. Hood Wright Memorial Hospital starting in 1895, and again renamed in 1913 as the Knickerbocker Hospital, and finally the Arthur C. Logan Memorial Hospital only a few years before closing in 1979.

The @museumofcityny recently acquired a selection of twenty photographs from Cooper's street play series, and you can see more of them in today's story.

"Linda" the llama in Times Square: Linda the Llama poked her head out the window of her taxi as she headed down Broadway in Times Square, on her way from ABC Studios. The story would run in Life Magazine on December 2, 1957 under the caption "High Paid Llama in Big City". The llama lived in a Manhattan browstone with her trainer. But the story didn't end there: the brownstone also housed cats, dogs, birds, a pig, a kangaroo and a miniature bull. Linda the Llama's photographer was Inge Morath, known for her surreal images.  Morath was also known for other offbeat photos: a driver with a poodle as a passenger, Chinese soldiers climbing a giant statue of Buddha, and frantically dancing girls from Iraq to Iberia. Nonetheless, "A Llama in Times Square" became Inge Morath's most iconic photo. It would appear in classrooms, calendars, museums and magazines (Oprah Winfrey's "O"). Morath did a series of photographs of Marilyn Monroe on the set of "The Misfits". On the set, she met Monroe's husband Arthur Miller.  Later, the two would marry.
