The maps are from the NYPL and are not specific for these images, with the exception of the ferris wheel map listed as 1921.February 18, 2021 at 6:12 pm in reply to: Mystery Building on Broadway in Van Cortlandt Park #1867
I think the map maker placed it in the wrong side of Broadway. An other key has it at #38…Also found a nice overview of the Ferris Wheel etcFebruary 18, 2021 at 5:31 pm in reply to: Mystery Building on Broadway in Van Cortlandt Park #1865
I found the building but it is identified as #38 but I can not find the key. It must have been an earlier comfort station in 1921
It appears the movie is available on line for free, but it takes a little work to set up.

Nick, Great photograph of Jean Knowles and the rest of children.
Wow ! Absolutely, the best baseball presentation I have ever seen. I missed opening day with Don, but got to see it on replay today. Cant wait for the DVD and PBS special…..Ken Burns can not light a candle to Don Rice.
The NYC muni Photos has labeled the Dash homestead on the Hudson River ( Hudson in background )
Now I wonder if the Yankees were not allowed to build the outfield into the Bronx ? I never noticed the dividing curve
Remember…The American League team received its approval to move from Baltimore to New York, but only in Manhattan. The “Yankees” had no choice but to build on the worse property in Manhattan, because the Giants had all the real estate for sale in a political lock. That being Marble Hill ( water and space problems) and Hilltop Park – ( small & rocky ) They chose Hill Top.. Later the Polo Grounds with the Giants and finally able to move to the Bronx. Co-op City area and Pelham Bay Park were possibilities also.
