A busy Harlem corner, train tracks in front of a cigar shop with a wooden Indian outside, a cafe sign hangs on the corner of another shop and who knows what in the front shop windows. Most of the apartment buildings were Irish, African, Italian built and designed, each unit different with impressive or modest, different in ornamentation, shape and size.
