On the steps of our building stands Julia with a friend.



Julia on her way home. This is a view towards 3rd avenue. Visible in the back is the elevated subway. According to Julia and Mrs. K. it made a big noise which they got used to after a while. Back then people parked their cars on both sides of the street.
The entrance. From left to right: Julia's sister, Julia, Mrs. K, Mrs. K's mom. (notice how well kept the banister and facade looks)

8 Saint Marks Place in May of 1959. Standing in front of the building is Mrs. K's mom with little Bo in the stroller. Notice that there were even apartments in the basement.
