A photo from 1871 shows Lenox Avenue getting ready for development when there was not much around uptown. The archival material mentions that the location is just north of Central Park so this was what today's Lenox Avenue looked like before the tenements and brownstones arrived. It also appears that 6th Avenue was just being laid out at this point in time or at being updated with more modern road surfacing.
