Wow!….Many details, dates and facts to help with research. Time to chase down family trees and see what records they can share.
I love reading a date specific clip about our shared past….including our neighbors in Inwood and Marble Hill.
Where possible, please post the dates of the newspaper articlesOctober 9, 2020 at 8:59 pm in reply to: On this date in 1886 – A Walking Tour of Riverdale, Kingsbridge, Spuyten Duyvil #1661
Cowboy Oak near the former Seton Hospital
In the words of Mr. Spock…. “fascinating” the intersection of the Kingsbridge Athletics and the Dyckman Oval Stadium.
Peter is correct about the NYC records….Many properties have 1898 or 1900 when the records were moved from Westchester County to the Bronx. However, Westchester County still has their original documents on microfilm and computers. If you trace out a deed in the Bronx, it may refer you to a name who owned the property sold to the Bronx purchaser. Armed with that information, it may lead to other prior owners.
Note: The Waterford Apt. and Bowie Dash house was at 3816 Waldo Ave
I double checked my files, after re-reading the article….I found a copy of a “Charles Buck ” postcard that I forgot about ” A Reconstructed Old Time Residence of Spuyten Duyvil. New York City ”
Yes…and a band shell on top with a restaurant
Yes….The line opened August 1, 1908…There is a nice color postcard I used in my book “Bronx Views”…a B & W in my book, Northwest Bronx. I think it lasted to 1917
Maybe Coffin had it right, but the publisher reversed the image
