Part of a New York Times collection called five interior designers 50 photographs which is curated by Jonathan Adler. Does recall a time when New York was the center of the universe and the beautiful people just had to be there.
The New York Times Store recently released a series of images from its 100+ year old photo archive, many of which have never been seen before and to celebrate, the Times tapped 5 celebrated interior designers Laura Kirar, Kelly Wearstler, Vicente Wolf, Jonathan Adler and Thom Filicia to curate a selection of 10 photos from the archive that reflects their design aesthetic and appreciation for the use of photography in interiors. The collection is called 50 Photographs and is now available for purchase at The New York Times Store.

The value of archived content of the NYT is not easy to determin, but there are those who see big dollars in unlocking the treasure:
Michael Zimbalist, vice president of research and development operations at The New York Times, discussed the possibility of publishers dipping into their archives to pull out content that could be repackaged and even monetized for mobile devices.
One way could be through geolocation services. We’ve seen several publishers, including the Times and Time Out New York, experiment with using Foursquare as a distribution partner ― but it’s still the beginning days. Crowley said there are a couple of people at Foursquare whose job is to focus on reaching out to blog
agazines and newspapers to get them to put that archive of content on Foursquare.
Foursquare wants to help publishers turn lengthy content into bite-sized nuggets to surface at opportune times. For instance, Crowley said Foursquare can bring to life information normally discarded, such as magazine restaurant reviews, by condensing the review into a tip delivered when a consumer visits the restaurant.
Zimbalist said every object has “information shadows” that can be conjured at different times on different devices. He said it might be speculative, but there’s potential to track and even be compensated for that content.Read More:http://emediavitals.com/article/1005/new-york-times-foursquare-see-new-value-old-content
