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) seen from a window in No. 5.
