The Other Side of Tudor City

Several posts ago, we ran a story about a photo of the back side of No. 45. Then we discovered even more pictures. . .

No. 25 and No. 45, seen in a riverside view. Made in 1929.

This version, taken around the same time, reveals the line of buildings ‒ all dedicated to the meatpacking business ‒ along the western side of First Avenue. These would be demolished as part of the neighborhood upgrades for the United Nations, and replaced by vest-pocket parks. 

And finally, a look at the completed trio, Nos. 5, 25 and 45, on a foggy day in 1934.
