☞ REMEMBER: The Claremont Inn circa 1910

An old postcard from 1910 shows the long gone Claremont Inn as it stood at the turn of the century.  The historic house was a main attraction uptown before Grant's Tomb was built and the two became a duo destination spot for decades after the monument's completion.  Sometimes in the 1950s, the Claremont would eventually burn down after years of neglect and was replaced by a playground at this section close to 124th Street and Riverside Drive.

  1. How beautiful!

  2. Wow, looks like something you would see by a seaside pier in England. What a shame that it is no longer there.
