The view in 2013:
The scene in 2023:
The difference is like night and day. Cheesy puns aside though, there is quite a difference in the Manhattan skyline between the two photos, over 100 years apart. The Brooklyn Bridge is still there, but otherwise, as far as I can tell, none of the buildings in the first photo are visible in the second. At least one of them – the tall Park Row Building at the far left of the first photo – still exists today, but I don’t think it can be seen from here.
April 2023 Update: I have added an updated photo, showing the scene during the daytime.
