REMEMBER: AN AERIAL VIEW OF HARLEM CIRCA 1915
ANSWER: This is a rare aerial vista of Sugar Hill in Hamilton Heights with a view looking north starting at the former Lewisohn Stadium which was a grand space for public gathering and concerts. Sugar Hill is pretty much intact because of landmark laws in many areas but the impressive structure that locals used go to and see performances from the likes of Ella or Frank Sinatra was not part of that destination.
