Historical viewfinder

Visitors can peer through an engaging viewfinder and see a large digital selection of then-and-now photographs (and some prints)of selected locations in the five boroughs. Brighton Beach, City Island, Battery Park, Flushing Meadows, and Sandy Ground, among many others, show dramatic changes from past to present.
