☞ REMEMBER: 580 West 130th Street c. 1932

The above photo from 1932 shows what the south east corner of Broadway and West 130th Street used to look like back in 1932. There apparently was a mix of frame houses, tenements and garages at this intersection in the past before everything was demolished. Today  this section of Manhattanville in West Harlem is a super block of public housing.   Photo courtesy NYPL

  1. Wonderful old photo, it has human interest with the auto repair signage, mechanics and children, really bringing this sidewalk scene to life.
