Inwood Park in 1977.

Joe's Concession Stand in 1977. It was located in Inwood Park on Isham Street across the street from Good Shepherd Church. My Family owned the stand from the mid 1920's when the Presbyterian Medical Center was built. It was given by the NYC parks department to my Grandfather James Pupley and his brother Peter when they arrived in this country from Greece in the 1900's. They came to the Parks Department with the idea to sell snacks in the park. His original stand was on the site of the Presbyterian Medical Center. They asked him what park he wanted to relocate to and he chose Inwood Park. Joe (his real name was Pete) sold candy, soda, hot dogs and ice cream. Frank and Louise, his niece, took it over in 1971 and remained until 1988. It has since been torn down. All the original owners - James, Pete, and Frank and Louise (my parents) have passed away.
