    I lived on 108th street between 2nd and 3rd till I was 12. Love all the memories.I went to St. Ann’s does anyone have any pics

      Josephine, my name is Jack and I went to St. Ann’s also in the 50s. Go on to goggle and type in 310 east 110th street and up comes the picture.

    I lived on 119 between 1st and 2nd and this is not what it looked like in 1960.

      Ok, I’ve done my homework on these photos. After driving down East 119th Street, I realized that the vintage photos from the link I posted, had the wrong location. I suspected that it was between 2nd and 3rd, not 1st and 2nd, and I was right. So now it is up to me to correctly map the location and dates of these 2 photos. Having researched these photos to their original database, the nypl digital archives, the year for both of these photos is 1919. I will correctly state the exact dates on the photos that I posted. Thanks for your input, Cathy. I enjoyed doing the detective work!
