This photo shows Tremont Presbyterian Church and the buildings around it in 1985. My parents were married there, I was baptised there, and I'm sorry to say I haven't been back since I took this photo!

This 1985 photo was taken in St. James Park looking toward Jerome Avenue and the 4 elevated train. When I was about six years old, my friends and I were left inside the red brick building a few mornings a week for a kind of nursery school where we played and enjoyed various arts and crafts. We participated in a Maypole dance where the flag pole is. That was in the sixties and I often wondered how long afterwards that continued.

This is a 1985 view of Walton Avenue looking south toward East 184th Street. For a few years as a child I lived on the fourth floor of the apartment house on the corner which was 56 East 184th Street, Walton Court. The beige building opposite went through a number of incarnations and looked temporarily forlorn when this photo was taken.

This 1985 photo shows Walton Avenue looking north towards Fordham Road from near the corner of East 184th Street.

This photo was taken from the upper platform of the Gun Hill Road subway station, ca. 1938, looking east along Gun Hill Road. The first cross street (foreground) is Cruger Avenue. The vacant lot in the foreground is the future home of Gun Hill Houses (my old home). The projects were completed in 1950. The portion of Cruger Avenue seen in the picture was covered over by Gun Hill Houses, so Cruger Avenue effectively ended at Magenta Street to the south. The cross street right next to the church is Holland Avenue. The church is The Immaculate Conception Church, completed in 1925. Behind the church are its monastery and grounds. To the right of the church visible just below the crest of the roof is Evander Childs High School. Since I grew up in Gun Hill Houses, and my 8th floor window faced Holland Avenue, this was basically my view. I could see Long Island Sound. Approximately thirty years after the photo was taken, Co-op City would occupy the far horizon.

This is Magenta Street at Barker Avenue, looking east towards White Plains Road, ca. 1938. The school in the rear of the picture is P.S. 41 on Olinville Avenue, my old elementary school. This area is part of the old village of Olinville, and hasn't changed much since the picture was taken.

In the 1950s my dad took this photo of the corner of University Avenue and West 174th Street, showcasing our neighborhood candy- store, Eddie's Candy Store & Luncheonette.
