    go to Image --> Adjustments --> Replace Color.

    In the Replace Color Screen, click on the image and the yellow color would be gone.

    Then adjust your levels to get the correct tone you want.

    Hope it helps. Tell me whether it works.

    Try to set the white balance of the scanner before you scan it. That will remove the yellow colour cast.

    Apply a photo filter using blue,change the intensity to minus away the yellow cast. After which, edit the saturation of colours notably the green and red untill the colours are right. U may want to play with color balance which in this instance seems easier... adjust curves for contrast.

    There are some yellow patches still... that can be cleared with clone or healing brush.

    with curves(ctrl + m), select the grey dropper at the bottom right hand corner and start to click on the photo where you think might be the most neutral grey colour. For this pic, i clicked on the NYP signboard. which i assumed is made of metal and grey. try different points and fine tune with the individual colour channel (RGB or CMY) to correct the slight colour cast remaining.

    you can use curves as an additional layer and use mask to apply different WB to diff parts of the pic (eg: sky more bluish, and buildings more yellowish look, etc..)

    if all the pics suffer from the same yellow tint, you can save the layer and batch apply to all your other pics.

    Most negatives when scanned all have the same yelowish tint because of the material its in. Some film scanners do thier own auto WB when it scans to to save you the trouble.

    If post editing is too much trouble, u may wish to rescan the file with the right colour balance. There was too much yellow with the initial scan. If u have ICE mode on your scanner activate it. Correct me if i am wrong, it looks like an old negative. A dedicated scanner like a Nikon coolscan4 or 5 yields better results than most flatbed. Some film negatives tend to curl, on a flat bed it touches the glass plane leaving uneven artifacts while scanning. Hope it helps.
