136th Street with the 3rd Avenue El, before Mitchel Houses

“There’s a picture that shows the corner, before the projects and when the 3rd Avenue El was still up, and that’s what I see in my mind’s eye when I walk to the corner. If I close my eyes I see that, to this day.” – Carol Zakaluk, grew up on 136th Street and still lives there now.
