You got me on that one! I never knew "the Great North Side" was used before the name "Bronx" kicked in! A few years ago there was a blog about where the name "Norwood" derived from. Back in the 60's, we referred to the North Bronx as "Norwood". One popular thought is that the name comes from the Dutch "North Woods" from back in the 1600's. Now I wonder if the Great North Side is a derivative of the Dutch "North Woods". I remember when North Side Savings opened a branch on Bainbridge & 206th. I used to spend time at Cozy Book Shop, then watch the construction going on wondering what they were building. Had my very first bank acct. at that branch.
