You can still tell it’s Howard place but how much more cozy it is now.I remember the fuller brushlady used to live on the last house on the street my girlfriend was right across from the playground. Anytime The subway went by all the houses used to shake on that end of howard place.lots of memories in one photo. Thanks Steve and to gerard trap for providing this photo.

She is 83 years old and her health is pretty bad to to advanced Parkinson’s disease. I will share your family name with her when I visit her at Labor Day.What is the name of my sister’s customer?

    This I don’t a very unusual photo. I was Gerard Trapp’s neighbor and lived in 1 Howard Place. Ever since whenever there was a subway on the corner and the houses straight at the end of the street do not exist. That is where Holy Name Parish children Place grass sports today.Any one know the date of this photo?
