More Historic Photos From the NYC Municipal Archives

On Tuesday, I linked to a collection of photographs harvested by the Daily Mail from a recently-released cache of 870,000. Now, Alan Taylor of The Atlantic has picked out 53 stellar examples.

Panic, the raddest little software company on the planet, has launched a new landing page. It’s pretty great, and it includes retina display support.
