White van turning where old Bronx Zoo entrance once was (Southern Boulevard and Pelham Parkway).  I believe that McDonald's was once a small amusement park, then at one time a Howard Johnson's (36 flavors).

I lived in the Belmont section from '58-'64, then moved
(sadly) to Tremont and Waterbury, Westchester Square area.
I loved my wonder years in the old hood. A million kids
lived on one block. There was no need to walk a few blocks to
Garden Street or Grote Street. There was enough to do right on
Beaumont Avenue. It seemed that 2 blocks over was another
neighborhood! Sure we were poor, but my parents never let me know.
We always had pasta and gravy twice a week, Sunday and Thursday.
Fish on Friday of course (Italian Catholics).
It really was the best of times, back in Da Bronx.
