Small Collection of Vintage New York City Skyline Photographs and Illustrations

Historical NYC is a blog which publishes in-depth analysis of vintage New York City photographs and maps. Recently they published a quick post of some amazing skyline photographs of the City that didn't necessarily have enough detail to warrant an exhaustive long-form post, but still definitely worth a look. These photographs and illustrations seem to range in age from about 150 years ago until the 1950's, but if you want to know for sure, or have other questions on these shots, Historical NYC welcomes them in their comments on the original post.
