“Quarter of Nine” on a busy New York street

December 1, 2011

Here’s another lovely Martin Lewis etching, this one entitled “Quarter of Nine, Saturday’s Children,” from the pivotal year of 1929.

I tried to research what block this is but came up empty. That looks like an armory on the right—could it be the demolished armory that once stood at Park Avenue and 34th Street?

Check out another Martin Lewis street scene with a now-solved mystery location in Queens.
