The Library of Congress has a photostream at Flickr that includes archival photos of Manhattan. Given the diabolical heat of late, these seemed approriate to post; to see how those before us coped with the heat.
Caption reads, "Fountain, Madison Square Park on a hot day." (Where's Shake Shack?)
No mention where this was taken. Just a note about a man cooling his head on a hot day.
Caption reads, "Asleep in Battery Park on hot day." (Maybe they're just waiting for the new Apple iPhonograph to be unveiled.)
Caption reads: "Milk House, Tompkins Sq.; hot day."
Meanwhile, I wouldn't mind this scene in Union Square for a few minutes right about now...
