I’m doing a bunch of these today and then I’m done with “then and now” for a while. First up is my block in 1937. So much is unchanged in my neighborhood. The biggest different between then and now seems to be trees.
The trees are blocking the view of the buildings that are virtually unchanged.
I am pointing out the ones that stood out for me.
This is St. Luke’s on Hudson Street. I didn’t write down the dates, it’s either the late 20’s or early 30’s.
The interesting thing here is, the church was mostly destroyed in a fire in 1981. This is the rebuilt church. But look how unchanged this section of the block is.
Another shot of St. Luke’s.
