Life Magazine has posted a great gallery showcasing some great photographs of New York in the 1940s.

The 1940s in New York are often seen as a Golden Age — a decade when America emerged from the second World War as the globe’s undisputed superpower, and New York City became, in a sense, the Capital of the World. Sports, finance, music, art — New York was where it was at, and photographers worked overtime to capture glimpses of the energy, rhythm, and optimism that powered the city that never sleeps.
