Before & After - Mott Street & Bowery

The above photo is interactive. Drag the yellow handle in the middle to reveal more or less of the before or after image.

In the course of this Before & After project, I've had the opportunity to capture this section of Mott Street twice. The original post featured a "Before" photo dating all the way back to the turn of the last century. This most recent entry splits the difference; dating from the late 1960s. In the original post, I commented how little the street had changed in over 100 years, and this latest "Before" photo offers us the opportunity to observe the gradual evolution.

Previously I had posted a 3-era-view of City Hall that showed a similar evolution over 3 different decades.
