This picture was taken at the lower end of Dyckman Street in 1958. You can see Regina Bakery in the background. It was the Vets Day parade I believe, or I would have been in my Little League Uniform. The LL team marching was the Amrose Association, managed by Gene Coyle and coached by my father.

Another picture of the same parade on Dykman Street in 1958.

This photo is of the corner of Academy Street and Vermilyea Avenue in Inwood in the 1940's. On the corner is the Blue Bakery and the school is P.S. 52

This is a panoramic shot of upper Manahattan taken in 1902. The view is facing west...you can just make out the palisades in the background.

The Billings residence...early 20th century....site of the present Ft. Tryon park and the cloisters. The road on the left is the present West Side highway. The huge tunnel/overlook is still there!

This was Paterno Castle, which is now the site of Castle Village apartments on Cabrini Blvd. in Washington Heights.

I took this photo about 1978 from the window where my aunt lived. It shows First Avenue and you can see the public school on 91st Street and First Avenue. I don't recall the number of the school.

This is a photo I found of Miramar Swimming Pool in Inwood taken sometime in the 50's or 60's.

This photo was taken from the Manhattan side of the Harlem River looking north towards the Washington Bridge (not GW) which connects from 181st Street in Manhattan to the Bronx. The dirt road on the left would be the present-day Harlem River Drive. In 1902 this was known as the Speedway which was built for the well-heeled to race their horses and carriages. The Speedway was the primary reason that C. K. G. Billings chose to build his estate where Ft. Tryon Park is today.

--Erik van Voorhees


This photo was taken around 1964/65. It is in Riverside Park facing North from around 125th Street. The George Washington Bridge is in the background (barely visible because of the haze). The road on the left is Riverside Drive South; on the right, Riverside Drive North and that bridge that goes from 125th to I think to around 137th street. I never really knew where that bridge ended.
