New York City-centric historical blog Stuff Nobody Cares About recently stiched together ten separate vintage photographs from 1892 found in the King’s Handbook of New York City in order to create an impressive 360° panoramic photograph showing lower Manhattan from atop the New York World Building, the world's tallest at the time.
Taken from atop Joseph Pulitzer’s New York World Building, you can get a sense of what the entire city looked like before the turn-of-the-century, when the skyscraper emerged and would forever alter the skyline. A golden dome topped Pulitzer’s Building with an observation gallery that gave the visitor the following view. Probably the three most prominent points in the panorama are from left to right, the Post Office, City Hall and the Brooklyn Bridge.
Check out the accompanying article for more analysis and highlights shown in the panorama.
