Cherry Street 1934

A picture of Knickerbocker Village on June 24, 1934 as construction was being finalized. You are looking west on Cherry Street from The Manhattan Bridge. Market Street is in the foreground. Madonna House would be on the left (South) side of Cherry a little before the intersection with Market. The famous Pete, the Hero King, would have his sandwich shop on Market, on the ground floor of the project, about a hundred feet north of Cherry. Photo by Percy Loomis Sperr
