August 24, 2018

This photo, which shows the construction of the old Third Avenue El train in 1887 at 143rd Street, gives you a feel for what Harlem looked like near the Hall homestead only 130 years ago.

The photograph is a very early image taken of the base supports for the El train long before the full structure for the train was built.
