Default New York's Beautiful Buildings That No Longer Exist

The Beautiful Buildings no longer exist, but their essence is captured in these photos.

Quote:
Join us as we take a trip down memory lane to recall what those earlier (better?) days looked like. From a building symbolically battling for greatness on Newspaper Row to the first (and second) incarnation of Madison Square Garden, click through to check out The Big Apple’s beautiful, lost buildings. Dear readers, what do you think? Should we have preserved these beauties, or is progress inevitable? Is the city today the most magnificent it’s ever been?

Progress is inevitable and no building really does last forever, but sometimes, the grandeur of a bygone era can remind us of where we've been and where we want to go.

It certainly was a beautiful time.
