Today, some moody images of Tudor City made during the war years.

Sunbathers on the roof of No. 45, open to all Tudor City residents at the time.

A lady walks west down the 42nd Street service road sidewalk. The South Park (and its gazebo) to her left. 

Looking west down 42nd Street at the soon-to-be-replaced tunnel. The spectators at the railing ignore the Chrysler Building for the view of the heavy industry along the river, where a steam plant and the slaughterhouse district were still in operation. 

A bird's-eye view of the South Park from a vantage point in No. 25.

The tennis courts (now the site of No. 2) as seen from a window in No. 5.

These pictures were forwarded by resident Garth Justice. Thank you, Garth! Dear readers, be like Garth and share your vintage items with this blog.
