      Thank you, Mr Matthews, for the pleasure of seeing images of our town that I, for one, wouldn’t get to see.

    3. Elizabeth says:

      Fantastic photos! Just amazing..

    4. Carol says:

      Thank you so much for these beautiful pictures. I have a question. In the third picture: Is that the 108th Street side of P.S. 165? I spent 7 years of my young life in that school.

    5. Miriam says:

      Carol, that’s right, that may be the roof of my building across from the school. I also attended PS 165 for a few years before transferring to Ascension on 108th. Came back to the ‘hood a few years ago.

        Miriam–Thank you. Did you live on 108th Street? My building was at 229 West 109 St., exactly across the street from the school. The school is a beautiful piece of architecture. Most of the kids on my block went to Ascension. That was a long time ago.

      Very nice. Thanks for the view.

    7. Once again a personal and beautiful cityscape.ira
