An 1889 photograph showing the newly-constructed Polo Grounds with horse drawn carriages at the foot of Coogan’s Bluff or Coogan’s Hollow. The Polo Grounds, home of Major League Baseball’s New York Giants prior to the franchise moving to San Francisco at the end of the 1957 season. However, the Polo Grounds actually sat in Coogan’s Hollow, the bottomland beneath the bluff.
A top the bluff are the most northern towers of Sugar Hill. At the right, partially hidden by trees with a white top, is the Morris-Jumel Mansion, the oldest house in Manhattan still standing (built in 1765 and now a museum).
