When I walk the streets of Manhattan, I find myself looking up at some on the very old buildings and wondering what life must have been like here years ago. I love to look at old photographs of places I know and have been to to see how much things have changed, but most of the time they are in black and white leading you to only imagine the colors and vibe. JG Mango has curated a capsule of photographs from the Charles Cushman Collection. All in color, the photographs depict New York City life in the 1940’s.
