    Default Grand Concourse Photo Tour - part two

    E 167 St SE corner


    Midblock at E 168 St, west side.


    E 172 St NE corner



    The Concourse bends west at Mt Eden


    E 174 St, west side - the Cross Bronx Expwy is to the right.


    The Cross Bronx Expwy passes under the Grand Concourse, Jerome Ave and the el. View west


    E 175 St SW corner. The building is angled to conform to the curve of the street.


    The Bronx Flatiron?


    E 182 St NE corner


    Many major thru-streets pass under the Concourse, but E Fordham Rd is the exception.


    View north from the E Fordham Rd overpass

    Cool. The flatiron shot did it for me.

    Most of the trees seem young and/or stunted. *Healthy mature trees make all the difference IMHO.

    I lived here^^^, on-again, off-again, during the 1960s and the first half of the 1970s, with my elder relatives.

    The "healthy and mature trees" (as Jasonik put it) are gone, I see. So is most of the grass. The building facade, however, is practically unchanged.

    (I see that the future tenant put an airconditioner in the kitchen.)

    Yes! The Bronx Flatiron is where Tremont Ave. cuts across the Concourse, a few blocks north of my former building.

    Very nice photos, Zippy.
