Happy New Year

I'm not sure if I'm going to have the energy to post the journal blog from last week today, so I'll leave you with these pictures I found on the web via Wired New York. So find a tear in your eye and fondly remember the old taxicabs, et-cetera.

Midtown- W. 42nd Street and Madison Avenue -1940's?
Notice the Avenue runs both ways. Up until around 1980 nearly every street ran both ways, but now nearly all the Avenues in Manhattan and many more across the city travel in one direction.

Downtown- ? -1960's?
Shiny garbage can, never been hit yet by blunt force trauma. The old sign-age with a bit more life.
