No Date & now: Little Italy decorated for the annual Feast of San Gennaro- now on its 92nd year of celebration. Today is the last day if you haven't made it down to Mulberry yet! #nycthenandnow #sangennaro 🇮🇹

1933 & now: Thanksgiving Ragamuffins standing on the corner of Hudson & Perry Street. Before Halloween rose in popularity, kids would dress in sloppy clothes as poor or homeless people on Thanksgiving (aka Ragamuffin Day). They would go door to door begging for candy and would yell "Anything for Thanksgiving?!" #nycthenandnow

1935 & now: Canal Street between Ludlow & Essex. Loew's Canal Street Theatre, a former motion picture house, is shown at No. 31 Canal. #nycthenandnow

❣Hildreths. Always a must on a visit to #southhampton. If not to shop, then just to explore history in America's oldest department store, located in the oldest town in New York State. Note the old wooden floors in the circa 1842 main building, which began as a general store. The Hildreth family came to these parts back in the 17th century. They're still here and still running the shop! See the old photos and ephemera lining the walls along the stairway as well as the historic 2nd floor displays. 📍They also sell lovely linens and things nowadays.

1920 & now: On this day almost 100 years ago an unknown man planted a horse-drawn wagon filled with 100lbs of dynamite & 500lbs of small cast-iron weights in the middle of Wall Street during lunch hour. At 12:01 PM the wagon was detonated, killing 38 and leaving 143 seriously injured. This bombing was never solved. Linking an article by @history & more photos in my story. #nycthenandnow

1905 & now: South down Fifth Avenue from between 56th & 57th- taken from the east side. #nycthenandnow

Built in 1904, this Neo-Italian Renaissance style building served as New York’s public bathhouse. Meant for the city’s poor who didn’t have adequate bathrooms in their homes, these buildings have become THE event spaces to rent. What a fun custom order request! #lakefairlane

Throwing it 🔙 six months to when my clients purchased this incredible 3 bed, 3 bath at The Astor on the Upper West Side. I arranged the financing in the form of a 30 year fixed with the first 10 years interest only, and they love the place almost as much as their primary home on Fisher Island in Miami 🤤

~1955 & now: View across Fifth Avenue to St. Patrick's Cathedral from Rockefeller Center. Showing the famous Atlas statue. #nycthenandnow

1979 & now: West Broadway south from Houston. Thinking of the thousands of people affected by this tragedy today. The skyline may have changed but our city is just as strong. #nycthenandnow

~1915 & now: SE corner of Rivington & Suffolk Street. If you're not from NYC and you visit- definitely check out the Lower East Side! Walking around there is like stepping back in time. #nycthenandnow
