Our friends at Stuff Nobody Cares About recently dug up this incredible vintage photograph showing the Manhattan skyline at night as seen from under the Brooklyn Bridge circa 1928.

The Brooklyn Bridge frames this unique view of lower Manhattan at night in 1928. The Woolworth Building (partially seen behind the tower of the bridge) was still the tallest building in the world. In the center of the photo is the third tallest building in the world, the Singer Building at Liberty Street and Broadway. The second tallest building at the time was the Metropolitan Life Insurance Building on 23rd Street and Madison Avenue.

Check out the accompanying article for more analysis and information about this \vintage photograph.
