Jackie Robinson Park and Pool - Photo #7

Bradhurst Avenue, 152nd and 153rd Street, looking northeast from atop the cliff, with a piece of the Colonial Park wading pool and its mini-bathhouse visible at bottom. Notice how apartments used to have awnings on their windows, a normal feature on NYC apartment buildings until after World War II. They didn't disappear for any special reason, like a new regulation; it just happened by itself.
