The playground in Inwood Park, taken in 1977.

Here's a view of the "C Rock" from Inwood Park in 1977.

--Frank Yannaco

Editor's Note: The "C" on that rock denotes Columbia University.


This was the Bill Graham's Fillmore East on Second Avenue in the East Village in 1971. We spend many a night there and feasted next door at Ratner's after a late-night concert and the accompanying bout of the hungries.

--Steve "Sonny" Stein


This was the Ninth Avenue El station at Christopher and Greenwich Streets in 1936.

--Greg W.

Editor's Note: In the background you can see the New York Central elevated railroad that ran above Washington Street, what is now High Line Park in the meat packing district.


Here's Inwood Plaza where Broadway, Dyckman Street and Riverside Drive all converge. This picture was taken during the Depression in 1936 when WPA work was being performed on public sites all over the country.

--Gerry McHugh


Post Avenue where it meets Dyckman Street. This picture was taken in 1926. Woolworth's was a neighborhood icon for many decades.

--Gerry McHugh


This was Lewis Avenue on the lower east side in 1939. The picture was taken looking south from Delancy Street, where the entrance to the Williamsburgh Bridge would be overhead.

--Allan B.


Corner of Christopher and Bleeker Streets in 1936. Remember those mailboxes that were attached to the lampposts?

--Allan B.
