This photo was taken from the window of 358 East 138th Street, the apartment where my mom lived. I'm not sure of the exact year, but the newest car is a 1957 Ford so it was probably that year or soon thereafter.

--Joe Panzarella

Editor's Note: The elevated structure above the Mott Haven Diner may have been a spur from the nearby Third Avenue El.


Here's another from my Mom's window at East 138th Street between Alexander and Willis Avenues. I don't know what the parade was celebrating. This was taken ca. 1957.

Here's another shot of the parade on East 138th Street, ca. 1957.

In 1915, this was the Allerton Avenue station on the brand-new IRT El over what would later become White Plains Road.

--Stephen E. Schindler

Editor's Note: Based on the stairway positions, this is apparently looking northeast. The streets in this area would eventually be paved over the next 10 years.


This was 1133 Findlay Avenue at the corner of 167th Street in 1940. The pharmacy was replaced after WWII with an auto parts store that remained in business through the 1960s.

This was Cascades Pool on the corner of River Avenue and 168th Street, sometime in the 1930s. Cascades, which would later become Palm Beach Pool, was a tiny oasis in the most unlikely of places, with the Jerome Avenue El roaring overhead every few minutes. Admission was 25 cents, which included a locker rental. The salt water pool had its own sandy area that required patrons to walk through a cold-water spray before entering the pool itself. The giant slide seen in this photo was the pool's most popular feature.
