This photo, taken in 1958, is of myself and my sister in front of my father's bakery (Gardenia). We are on St. Nicholas Avenue with the corner of 178th Street directly behind us. The large sidewalk clock behind us belongs to the jewelry store on the corner (Abraham's?). The buildings in the background are about to be demolished. They will become the site of the high rise Bridge Apartments and the expressway that runs underneath them. This photo is directly across the street from the photo of Bill's Market that is already in the archives. The view is facing northbound.

This is an aerial view of the Bakers Field area, taken in the 1930s. Note the Seaman Estate. Indian Road was just a dirt path. Much of the area was dredged out and moved and made the park area that now exists. Many buildings and private homes had not been built yet.

This picture was taken around 1976, and shows the building at 68 Cabrini Boulevard. This was taken from the corner of 180th Street and Cabrini Boulevard. The sister building to 68 Cabrini was torn down in the early 60's when the lower level of the George Washington Bridge was built and room for ramps was needed. 68 Cabrini was to be torn down as well, but the Port Authority changed its mind because apartments were needed to house some of the thousands of already displaced families. The park shown was the second attempt to build a park at this site. The first was remodeled because of all the drinking that took place there. This one has also been remodeled because the one shown was a favorite hangout of the methadone junkies. The red building in the background is on 181 Street. The taller red building in the far background is the first building of Castle Village.

This photo was taken at a park at 180th Street and Cabrini Boulevard. As you can see, the George Washington Bridge is in the background. The red building is 330 Haven Avenue. The man with the dog is my father who thought he was quite the fashion plate with his shorts and knee-high socks. This was taken around 1966.

Here is a picture of the World Trade Center taken from Liberty State Park in Jersey City, NJ. I framed the Woolworth Building, one of the first skyscrapers with the Towers of the World Trade Center. This picture was taken in the Mid 1980's.

This photo of Pete's Newsstand in the 1940's was taken at 184th Street and Fort Washington Avenue, at the entrance to the IND line A train. The building is 536 Fort Washington Avenue. The stand no longer exists. As children we used to buy our soda and candy when playing in the park across the street. The subway had a large tiled bathroom, very art deco. To the right still stands a Jewish temple.

This picture was taken in the early 1950's from Highbridge Park softball field. In the background is Amsterdam Avenue and 171st Street.

The only lighthouse on Manhattan Island. It warned ships of Jeffrey's Hook just north of the bridge. Taken by me in April of 1957.
