9 Old Pictures of The Bronx
78 West 168th Street at Woodycrest and Shakespeare Avenues in Highbridge once the old Highbridge New York Public Library has been replaced with a newer building although not as pleasing to the eye as this original beauty/NYPL Digital Collection
The Bronx is beautiful and we love looking at old pictures of our borough as much as you do and thanks to the New York Public Library we can do just that.
With the NYPL Digital Collections, I tend to get lost for hours at a time while researching images for stories both current events and historical ones.
All the images are from the Irma and Paul Milstein Division of United States History, Local History and Genealogy, The New York Public Library. The New York Public Library Digital Collections. 1887 – 1964.
But you know what’s better? Your old photographs so if you have any you’d like to share, feel free to drop us a not over at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide a brief caption!
