Park Farm Contest
Thomas Jefferson Park, Manhattan | April 4, 1939
There is a clear view to the left of this photo, of the Park’s Pavilion(East Harlemites called it the “White House.”)It was built in the “Beaux-Arts” style of architecture. Notice the twin gas tanks on E. 110th Street, between 1st and 2nd Ave. My dad’s family lived across from the gas tanks. That was their view from their living room.
