New York City, New York

This is Times Square which is the heart of New York's theatrical district with the New York Times Building marking the division of 7th Avenue from Broadway. Within the radius of 10 blocks are scores of theatres. The tall building with clock houses the Paramount Theatre, one of the leading motion picture palaces. Next to it is the Hotel Astor.

With its shining spire of Nirosta steel literally scraping the sky, reaching a height of 77 stories - 1046 feet, 4 3/4 inches, the Chrysler Building takes its rightful place among the wonders of the modern world. From the Observatory on the 71st floor over 1600 square miles are visible. The building contains more than 1,000,000 sq. ft. of office space and is planned to house and serve comfortably 15,000 tenants and employees, a population equal to that of each of one hundred good sized American towns.

Everybody who comes to New York takes a trip thru Central Park, a small corner of which is shown in this picture. The park, which comprises 840 acres is surrounded on all sides by beautiful hotels and apartment houses. Here are shown the Plaza, Savoy Plaza, the Sherry-Netherlands and Pierre Hotels, near the 59th Street and 5th Ave. entrance to the park.

  1. The last one reminds me of SWEET CHARITY. I wonder if that is the same bridge from the movie.
