161st Street, looking east toward the Concourse Plaza Hotel. In front of the Plaza is Joyce Kilmer park. The Lorelei Statue, honoring Heinrich Heine, from the north end of the park has been restored and now sits at the south end, opposite the Bronx County Courthouse. In the foreground is the sign for the Earl Theater, a popular neighborhood Movie house. This photo was taken from the 161st Street (River Avenue) stop on the #4 (Woodlawn Road) line, in the early 1970s.

The 161st Street (River Avenue) stop on the #4 (Woodlawn Road) line, taken in the early 1970s. In the far distance one can see the Executive Towers Apartment House at 165th Street and the Grand Concourse. That building replaced the Ursuline Academy, a convent where three of my sisters attended High School.

These three pictures were taken at the corner of 184th Street and Morris Avenue. I lived at 2386 Morris Ave from 1939 to 1951. The pictures are from a 1961 trip when I stopped to see my old neighborhood. The candy store was where I used to have chocolate fizzes and also where I bought my first cap gun. The fire escape, upon which I slept during hot summer nights, was still there at the time.

This picture of P.S. 33 (my alma mater) was taken from under the IRT El on Jerome Avenue in 1961.

A view of the upper deck of Yankee Stadium, taken from the Jerome Avenue IRT 161st Station.

--Mike Harvey

Editor's Note: This picture, taken in 1961, shows the Stadium's classic upper-tier facade, most of which was lost during the renovation of 1974-1975.


The Jerome Avenue IRT, with a train entering the 161st Station. Taken in 1961.

This picture was taken by my father (that's me as a baby and my father's friend) in the early 1950s. The area is where Section 5 of Co-Op City is now. You can see the AMTRAK train bridge in the background. The Pelham Bay Bridge would be beyond that but is hardly visible. I was back in that area a year ago and I believe most of the area was landfilled all the way up to the white cement part of the bridge that's in the center of the picture where it starts going over the water.
