Hi, Alvin!

Your response of Marmion Avenue going up to Crotona Park reminded me of the steep hill of Crotona Park East going up from Southern Boulevard. Its sidewalk alongside the park was ALL steps! Even though the hill itself was about the length of a full block, I was always fascinated at seeing those sidewalk steps from the elevated subway just before the train pulled into the 174th Street station. This was during my growing up years of the 1940s and early 50s. Thanks, Alvin, for bringing back a nice memory for me!

Be well!
Sammy
