This friendly maintenance guy was sweeping leaves by the cemetery, but seemed to be simultaneously complaining that Friday couldn’t arrive soon enough, but that he didn’t get enough overtime.
One of the six in Woodlawn Cemetery designated as “Great Trees” by the NYC Parks Department. Reminds me of pictures I saw of Hartford’s famed Charter Oak.
This Western-themed bar is right across E. 233rd Street from Woodlawn Cemetery. Clever.
Also on E. 233rd, this old New England Colonial style house, “five over four and a door,” would fit right in (just as it is) in rural areas of Connecticut and Massachusetts.
In the Revolutionary War, Chief Nimham and his Stockbridge Indians sided with the Americans against the British. In a skirmish here in 1778, seventeen of them fell in a skirmish with the Redcoats. The D.A.R. put up this monument in 1906, in this part of Van Cortlandt Park known as Indian Field, across from Oneida Avenue (formerly Devoe’s Lane).
Beautiful rubble-stone construction church in Woodlawn Heights.
MacLean Avenue is in SE Yonkers, just across the city line from the Bronx neighborhood of Woodlawn Heights. It is the main commercial and retail street of the strongly Irish neighborhood that extends across both sides of the border.
