116 Street Then And Now, Part 2

I mentioned the NYPL's Loomis Sperr collection back on 8/24/05. In created the 4/24/06 I remembered there was also a 116th St photo there, circa 1893. I matched it up with the same vantage point today. When I showed it to some 4th graders they were fascinated that were once cows grazing across from where their school is now. Some of the kids live in the projects on the block (115th Street, between 5th and 6th Ave) south of the church.
