Aerial View of New York City - about 1970


Aerial photograph of the City of New York, about 1970, seen  Southern Manhattan, part of Brooklyn, on the right, part of Governors Island and Jersey City, on the left.

The year this photo was taken can be estimated by the Twin Towers that can be seen under construction. They were built between 1966 and 1973. In the photo, it appears that the two towers were erected to the top, although unfinished, which occurred in the early 1971.
