The 110th Street Subway Station, Harlem, NY 1901

The wooden subway station with smokestacks looking northeast at Lenox Avenue and 110th Street in Harlem, NY, in 1901.

Our notes show that this photograph was taken when the station was first under construction on April 9th, 1901, just after the turn of the century.

The brick apartment units in the background are a hint at the future to come in the 20th century.
