In 1946 Stanley Kubrick was a staff photographer for Look Magazine. He was tasked with capturing candid life and love in New York City aboard the subways. As you can see, not too much has changed in the past 60+ years save for the attire (which is swinging back towards this classic look) and the lack of ipods and ipads. We’d like to give a special thanks to the The Museum of The City of New York‘s blog for these photos. Take an intimate look at life in Gotham in the 1940s.
