Remarks

This photograph and Key Set numbers 1321 and 1322 are all dated on the basis of documents recording the construction of several buildings seen under construction in the distance. In Photographic Views of New York City, 1870s–1970s, photograph no. 909.C2, dated 4 March 1930, shows the Hotel Pierre (to the right of the Sherry-Netherland Hotel) in the same stage of completion seen here. Judging from the height of the New York Trust Company Building (under construction in front of the Squibb Building), which was completed in late 1930, Key Set numbers 1321 and 1322 were made in May or June 1930, before Stieglitz left to go to Lake George on 17 June.
