Old NYC, created by Dan Vanderkam in collaboration with the NYPL, is the type of project that could keep us rapt for hours. It’s an interactive map that organizes historical photographs geographically, block by block, producing a kaleidoscopic image of New York city at the turn of the 20th Century.

The photo featured above is from about 1903 and depicts the Williamsburg Bridge under construction.

Also, check out the below image, which depicts the corner across from where the Adafruit factory now stands!

Spring Street at,and adjoining and East of the South East corner of Varick Street. To and including 240 Spring Street,a little faced frame house. 256-254 Spring Street,the houses at and adjoining the South East corner of Varick Street were demolished in 1914 or 1915, when Varick St. was widened its entire length at the expense of the East Side, during the construction of the West Side Interborough Line.
