Scattered along the streets and sidewalks of New York are thousands of metal disks that cover portals to the myriad services crucial to the life of the city. Since at least the 1850’s aqueducts (and the resulting sewers), gas, electric, telegraph, telephone, pnuematic tube, cable television and transportation companies, as well as coal, oil and refrigeration distributers and more have all left their marks. Passed by and stepped on by generations of New Yorkers, The NYC WALK OF FAME showcases 20 of the oldest and most iconic iron covers to be seen in the city today.
