Manhattan skyscrapers in the early 1920s

In the early 1920 skyscrapers dominated the Manhattan skyline. Below is a selection of the early skyscrapers and a couple of other photos from New York from that time:

The Bank Trust building, with the Singer tower in the background.

The Equitable Building at 120 Broadway. 15.000 people were working in the 37 floor building in the 1920s. 

The 34 floor Municipal building.

Hotel Pennsylvania. It had 2200 rooms in the early 1920s.

The New York Times building.

Metropolitan Life Tower.
Pennsylvania station.
