Old School NYC

So this is apparently a photo of Broadway in New York City from get this...


I've always been fascinated with old photos of the city. Not just old like 1920's, 1930's, but "old" like 1700's, 1800's. I mean, look at the photo! It's crazy how different it looked back then! 

Some more old pics of NYC can be found here.

Some highlights (albeit later than 1848):

West St. circa 1885

Broadway circa 1894

That photo looks like something out of a horror film.
