Looking west from 42nd and First, then and now. 

Circa 1935
Looking west down 42nd Street from First Avenue, the view is dominated by the mammoth 42nd street tunnel. Erected in 1880, it would stand until the late 1940s, when it was demolished and replaced by the Tudor City Bridge.

A more streamlined approach to the traversing the street, the Tudor City Bridge is so minimal that it's barely visible, obscured by a stoplight, traffic signs and foliage.
