A beautiful day on the Boulevard

March 7, 2009

Morningside Heights looks like a country village in this 1895 photo, facing south from 114th Street. 


“The Boulevard” referred to the main artery bridging 59th Street to Harlem. Eventually it was absorbed into the northern extension of Broadway; those wide roads and the tree-lined center mall are still recognizable. No more bicyclists riding leisurely though.
