小编摘要:如果你爱一个人,请带他去纽约,因为那里是天堂。

导读:纽约市(New York City)是美国最大城市及最大的商港,也是世界经济中心之一,被人们誉为世界之都,习惯了她摩登模样的我们一起看看流金岁月中的旧时纽约吧!

Pictures from a tour guide for New York City are the closest people can now come to actually travelling back in time to the Gotham of yore.

The images show a different Manhattan from the ones that is etched in the collective imagination, as the technological advancements that occurred throughout the 20th century helped to shape New York into the city it is today.

The skyscrapers are non-existent and the streets are far from bustling.

In some of the photos, the city appears almost empty, with far fewer people filling up the sidewalks than the more-than 8 million residents who currently call the Big Apple home.

One of the landmarks that was there at the time and still stands today was the arch in Washington Square Park.

In some of the photos- released through New York City's expansive municipal archives- the park is almost completely empty, with only a few strollers and a handful of cars.

That differs greatly from the throngs of New York University students and buskers and street performers who set up camp in the Greenwich Village park.

Another landmark shown is the Woolworth building, which, at the time, was largely occupied by the offices of it's namesake company.

It now houses several university spaces- including some offices of Fordham and New York universities.

One thing has stayed the same about the downtown tower, however, and that is it's height.

One thing has stayed the same about the downtown tower, however, and that is it's height.

Standing tall at 57 stories, it is still one of the fifty tallest buildings in the entire country, and is one of the 20 tallest in Manhattan.

Originally released in 1939, the book was written by a group of writers commissioned by the government as part of the Federal Writer's Project.

The organization was established as one of New Deal programs put on by the Work Progress Administration endeavors that aimed to help struggling workers earn a living during the Great Depression.
