City Snow

Okay, here's our image for the monthly PhotoFlash "Where in the World" quiz.

Ladies and gentlemen, take your best guess. Where do you think this image was created? (As specific as you can get... I am talking street names, people.)

And George, don't give away any hints. For example, if this was shot from the offices of Shutterbug magazine, don't tell anyone.

Let the games begin... #61641

This picture was taken in New York city, US, on 33rd street and lexington avenue #210984

George Schaub 9/25/2003 4:21:08 AM

Oh, ever so close, but no cigar. Note the two-way traffic (hint).

A street in the Chicago Loop. #211175

George Schaub 9/25/2003 6:09:19 AM

The weather would seem to indicate that but go East.

Renee 9/25/2003 6:32:33 AM

How about 49th st and Rockefeller Plaza the store front studio of The Today Show?

This looks like broad street philadelphia #211256

Jim Gallagher 9/25/2003 7:05:54 AM

This looks like Park Ave in NYC in the 30's #211280

George Schaub 9/25/2003 10:01:13 AM

Jim G is very warm (for a cold day) #211443

Jim Gallagher 9/25/2003 11:20:13 AM

The picture is looking to the west side of Park ave at 33rd street #211501

June Marie Sobrito 9/25/2003 11:45:54 AM

Park Avenue South at 23rd Street? #211517

Caroline Bobb 9/25/2003 5:42:37 PM

I guess I am way off, but I was going to say Boston. . . couldn't even begin to say where. Also, it could be a view from the Penobscot Building in downtown Detroit when I worked on the 22nd floor! I guess I would have been looking down on Fort Street. . .

Doesn't look like Park Ave to about Lexington Ave...and if I have to narrow it down further...somewhere in the 30's? #211794

June Marie Sobrito 9/26/2003 3:59:53 AM

Lexington doesn't have two way traffic. #212091

George Schaub 9/26/2003 6:32:28 AM

The two way traffic is really the tipoff here.

York Ave. in NYC? #212975

Robert F. Wilson 9/26/2003 6:25:56 PM

Let me see, New Yauk..44th and Broadway...never been there, looks like downtown Grand Rapids, MI #212977

Sharon 9/27/2003 8:36:33 AM

Well, looking at the cars it suggest late 60's or 70's. I looking at the pharmacy would guess PA. There is bus stop benches but no pinpoint clue for me. It could be downtown Toledo or just that place in our past wintery travels that evokes that old memory, great picture!! Sharon #213620

Donna R. Moratelli 9/27/2003 6:04:24 PM

HI George, Judging by the height of where you are too, it looks like it may be the offices of the Corbis Stock Market in NYC.I can't remember the exact address but it looks like it may be there. #213976

George Schaub 9/29/2003 4:57:11 AM

I'll tell all by wednesday this week, but I can tell you all that the shot was made in 1987 and it's from my fifth floor office at the old Pop Photo building (Ziff/CBS). That's the last clue. #215460

Debbie S. 9/29/2003 5:21:26 AM

It's got to be around Rock Center...the 2-way street isn't an Ave like we may think, it's a 2-way street, like 42nd. ??? but that's not where Rock Center is...? 49th and Rock Center, and that's my FINAL answer! ;>) #215472

Sreedevi Kashi 9/30/2003 1:26:39 AM

14th St.? Possibly near Union Sq., and the shopping, but not actually at Union Sq. I notice the subway entrance. But my other guess is Houston St.- I know it's definitely not near the F's stops at 1st/2nd. Near Mott St.? (Is there a 4,5,6 stop there?) The buildings don't look like any I can recall on Houston though. Ok, these are my two guesses so far. #216375

Mitch 10/8/2003 5:59:53 AM

Somewhere in the 20's on Park Avenue; maybe 28th st. Its been years since I was in the neighborhood. Maybe across from a cafeteria? #225235

George Schaub 10/8/2003 6:08:26 AM

Ok, so many folks were's Park Ave at 32nd St in NYC. This was taken on a winter day (obviously) from my fifth floor office window whehn I worked at Pop Photo at One Park Ave. Thanks for all your input on this photo. #225248
