An archival photo taken after the Depression years shows Strivers Row at West 138th Street with mid century vehicles on the street but the buildings on the block itself are all still unchanged. The neighborhood located between ACP/7th Avenue and FDB/8th Avenue has always been recognized for its architectural significance and each house is now designated a New York City Landmark. The lower photo shows the block today and how many modern homeowners have since decorated the townhouses built back in the early 1890s.
