1909: The flagship train of the New York Central and Hudson River Railroad, the Empire State Express, makes its way past Washington Street in Syracuse, New York City. Furthering its infamy was the fact that it was the world's first passenger train to exceed 50 mph. It also undertook the longest scheduled non-stop train journey in the world at the time - some 143 miles between New York City and Albany. Trains had run through the middle of Syracuse since 1859, leading it to be called "the city with the trains in the streets". Trains ran through its streets until 1836, and the Empire State Express was the very last train to do so.

1919: The 369th US Infantry Regiment earned themselves the nickname "Harlem Hellfighters" due to their fearlessness in battle, never having one of their men captured, or even losing a foot of ground to the enemy. In early 1919, the Hellfighters were on their way back home. In the photo above, a few of them can be seen posing while wearing their Cross of War medals. They were met with a euphoric welcome on their return to New York City, proudly marching up Fifth Avenue.

1933: The Great Depression was initiated following the stock market crash of 1929, leading to the explosion of unemployment and homelessness. This led to the rise of shantytowns all over the United States, not least New York City's Central Park. This "Hooverville", as this kind of settlement was nicknamed, sprung up in the area of the park's lower reservoir. It had been drained and set aside to become a lawn, but the project was derailed due to the economic downturn. Destitute people literally lived in the shadows of opulent buildings such as the Beresford prior to being moved off the land and the resumption of construction in 1933.

1900: By the turn of the 20th Century, nine out of ten people living in Manhattan's 14th Ward were of Italian descent. This photograph was taken on Mulberry Street and depicts a hive of activity - vegetable stalls, children running around barefooted, horses and carts and items of clothing being left out to air over the street's balconies. Mulberry Street got its name from Mulberry Bend, which was a curvature in the street surrounded by many mulberry trees. Sadly, not many Italian-Americans are left in Little Italy, with only a few Italian stores having a presence there in the present day.

Re:

1910: These Newsies (or newspaper boys) were photographed in Jefferson, Missouri. All were puffing away on their respective cigarettes or tobacco pipes despite being of preteen ages. They were photographed by Lewis Hine, a photographer working for social reform in the United States and beyond. Hine had difficulty photographing child workers at their places of work, and this is because he usually had to seek permission from their employers first. This wasn't an issue with newsies, and photographs such as this one led to his creation of a body of work that helped to achieve a change in the cultural understanding of what it means to be a child, as well as a change in the law itself.
