REMEMBER: Frederick Douglass Boulevard c. 1980
The lower photo shows the same buildings by 114th Street today which has a different outlook. All of the empty shells and lots have either now been built on or restored in a part of town that is now replenishing its numbers. South Harlem is now a mixed economy with new residents of many backgrounds and even different nationalities that have all helped the neighborhood become a desirable place to live once more.
