My current studio project is situated in Brooklyn along the waterfront, between the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges. While investigating the history of the site, I came upon this image. It has become one of my favorites for its high level of detail. After some research into companies that advertised on buildings in the photo, I beleive it to have been taken between 1907-1915.  I came upon this date when I realized there was a Wrigley gum advertisement, which didnt exist until 1907.
