I would NEVER have known that the location of the photo is Tremont and Webster Avenues; however, your response got me curious to learn how Echo Park got its name! According to John McNamara in his "History In Asphalt", Echo Park (now renamed Julius Richman Park) and nearby Echo Place up the hill from Webster Avenue, were known for their their echos originating from a wooded glen in the area of the park. Also, in looking at my Bronx street map, I notice that Tremont Avenue divides into a northbound and southbound lane as it approaches Webster Avenue. A circular portion of Echo Park separates the two lanes. Could that be the the "factoid"?
