Riverside Church

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 West 138th Street, 1933

Broadway and West 138th Street, 1933

The photographer shoots south, along Broadway from just outside Montefiore Square Park on W. 138th Street. People sit on benches chatting and reading the paper. A boy in a sandwich board offering brand new 1933 automobiles for rent walks past the subway kiosk. Between the trees and the lamp post, one can see the tower of Riverside Church 18 blocks south.
