Broadway and West 115th Street, 1937

Broadway and West 115th Street, 1937

Looking northwest across Broadway from the southeast corner of Broadway and W. 115th Street, on this day in 1937, one can see the campus of Barnard College, Riverside Church, and Union Theological Seminary. The buildings and the trees have all gotten taller since then, and one can no longer see the Church or the Seminary from this vantage. The entrance to the 116th Street subway station that you can see right behind the trolley is no longer there.

Broadway and W. 115th St., 1937

In this view north along the Broadway center mall, you can see the main gates of Columbia University on the right and Barnard College and Riverside Church on the left.  At the time of this photo West 116th Street was still open to vehicular traffic and street cars were still in operation.  The street car tracks are still in place today beneath a layer of asphalt pavement.
