Pic of the Day - Old Yankee Stadium from the Woodlawn IRT Tracks

Great photo uploaded by the New York Transit Museum of the old Yankee Stadium as seen from the Woodlawn IRT.

Make sure to check it out the Google Street View, which was taken before the old stadium was demolished and the new stadium (on left) was completed.

Also check out  youtube videos of the demolition (sniff, sniff!).

Two Perspectives of Alexanderplatz, 30 yards and 76 years apart.

Alexanderplatz, 1903
Alexanderplatz, 1979
Few cities have reinvented themselves more over the past 100 years than Berlin. The comparison of these two images illustrate the dramatic nature of this transformation. Both photographs were taken from the same section of elevated U-bahn track over Rathausstraße (once called Königstraße), and both are looking more-or-less north-northeastward.
