This is obviously Grant's Tomb. This must have been taken around 1966 or 1967.

Editor's Note: I always wondered who was buried there...

This photo was taken in March of 1962 on Academy Street between Sherman and Vermilyea Avenues. On the left is JHS 52.

This is a photo of Bill's Market, on 178th Street and St. Nicholas Avenue. It was my Dad's butcher shop. To the right of his shop were a hardware store and a shoemaker. I took this photo in 1972-3.

Here I am on my new, homemade scooter. Take an orange crate, a 2-by-4 and a roller skate, and bingo, a New York scooter! This photo was taken in 1945(?). My brother Pat and his pal, Big Mo, look on. We are on the corner of Cabrini Boulevard and 180th Street.

This is an aerial picture of Upper Manhattan in 1932 from the Hudson River to the Bronx. Many buildings were not yet built. Mother Cabrini Church's main entrance was on Cabrini boulevard, also known in those times as Northern Boulevard. Many of the buildings on Fort Washington Avenue and Cabrini boulevard were not yet built, and there were no stores on West 187th Street yet.
