New York City Newspaper Stand

Photo Details

A typical New York City newspaper stand taken around 1903. I can't recognize the exact location (perhaps others can?) because there does not seem to be many unique characteristics.

I LOVE the people's everyday outfits and the ornate staircase which must lead to a train? Notice the horse and buggy and how the horse is blurred as it was moving while the photo was being taken.
