145th Street between Brook and Willis

It came to a time that you could walk from 148th Street all the way to the middle of the block all the way to 138th. Before they were building St. James, Brook Park, you could walk all of that through there. The only thing that was in 145th Street between Willis and Brook was the church. And the house, the white house that is there at 304, that was the only thing, the only house that was there. Everything was gone.
