Gorgeous Vintage Photos Show New York Between 1920 And 1940

The greatest city in the world even back then?

For many New York City is the greatest city on this planet but we wanted to share a series of photos today and look at it over 70 years ago. RealKimJongUn posted the series on reddit the pictures were taken by his great grandfather and he scanned them and uploaded them for the world to see.

Many of the iconic buildings and bridges still look the same but the city certainly has a quieter feel to it in these photos than it does when you see it today...
