You Must Remember This: Horse Tales

Continuing with those great oral histories from Kisselhoff's book (some require editing for the censors)-Sam mentioned some of the funky smells of old LES. Here's a segment that's very fragrant. The image above comes from the 1891 Bromley map. In addition to the previously mentioned breweries and other factories, there were also many stables spread out in the neighborhood. You can see one here on Montgomery, between Cherry and Monroe. The LaGuardia projects now occupy this area.
