The Times Building, erected in 1904, dominates the image. Hotel Astor, on the right, was completed in 1904 and demolished in 1967.

The New York Theatre, on the left (between 44th to 45th streets), presents the revue Follies of 1910 by F. Ziegfeld Jr. at the Jandin de Paris. It opened in June 1910, an open-air attraction in the roof garden, which was redecorated for the summer. This theater opened in 1895 and the building was demolished in 1935.
