Graham and Metropolitan

70 years on, all of the buildings in Berenice Abbott's photo of Graham and Metropolitan remain, but the view sure has changed. Amazingly, there is still a lot of architecture left behind many of our faux-clad buildings. Here, though, the cornices and tower have been lost.

Besides the massing of the buildings themselves, about the only constant is the signage on the corner building.
