I am guessing that the photo may have been taken somewhere in Mott Haven. If so, then could the famous name associated with the photo`s exact location be Jonas Bronck? He settled there during the 1640s in the vicinity of Lincoln Avenue (another famous name) and East 132nd Street. If my guess is correct, then those kids in that schoolyard may actually be playing inside the grounds of what was once Jonas Broncks` farm more than 370 years ago!
