Pushcarts and Trolley
CSS Description
Note the rubber tires on the trolley. It looks as if two trolleys are passing each other. There used to be a pushcart market from about 102 to 110 streets, Park Avenue to First Avenue. From Park to about Third the neighborhood was Jewish; from there to First, Italian. This was taken in the Italian neighborhood. This area is now covered by Housing Projects.
