(Heading East) thanks Gina!
The corner building is 2386
My good friend Claire lived here.
The corner building used to have a
candy store/luncheonette which was
run by the Ludwig and Anna Klein.
During the late 60's they moved to
the Pelham Parkway area and the
business was taken over by the Paul's.
Ellen lived here
The rear entrance which I used because
I lived just across the street.
Spent many hours climbing the rocks at
Echo park during the years I attended P.S. 28.
When I saw the Dollar Savings Bank in
the distance (Now called Emmigrant)it
brought back many fond memories of
taking long walks on the Grand Concourse
on summer evenings and having the moon
follow us. We always walked up to Alexander's
before turning back...those were great times.
(building is now P.S. 9)-I graduated from there in 1966.
I had relatives who lived at #18 so I walked there many times
between 180th Street and 181st Street, in 1949 or 50
This whole street was torn down and replaced in the 60's (I think).
While there is still a 2114 Clinton Avenue, it's no longer the old
walk-up tenement where I grew up. We moved into this building in
1939 and I lived there until I left to go for my M.A. in 1952.
