Upper level, access at front, conduit from the south and north. and wire from the north.  Lower level wire only, access at rear via graded track on the north side.

On the "K" Mahattan conduit line at 210 St. and Broadway.  Wire to the north for serving lines in The Bronx.

Thanks for those bits of nostalgia David!  What a good looking building the Third Avenue had, and I love that car parked in front!

A question, in Photo 4 what's that big building on the hill in the background?  It looks sort of familiar but I can't place it.

Both across the Harlem River in The Bronx

Thanks David!  That large building does have a "hospital" look to it.

A fellw veteran who used the sevkces of the hospital has inforned me that:

The former school buildings are now part of the hospital complex.

The complex is or was known as Kingsbridge Veterans Hospital.

The complex has recently been modernized.
