When you think of New York, you might think of Broadway, Central Park, the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty at Battery Park, Times Square, and Coney Island. But if you look at these vintage postcards, you’ll see that New York State has lots of historical views to offer. These postcards document historical buildings, churches, synagogues, railroads, and Hudson River and Erie Canal docks in towns throughout the Catskill Mountains and upstate New York. Others show snapshots of the past across Long Island.

Long-gone structures like Ebbets Field, home to the Brooklyn Dodgers, which opened in 1913 and was demolished 1960, are remembered in these cards, as well as the New York World’s Fairs in 1939-40 and 1964-65.
