Tidbit of NYC Trivia

The Yankees won tonight and are still contenders! With that in mind, here's a bit of NYC Triva:

Identify this picture: time period, location, building.... any details you can come up with. I KNOW alot of you can figure it out:)


  1. Turn of the century photo of the Jefferson Market Courthouse which became the Jefferson Market Library in the village @6th ave & 10th street NYC. Not too far from the Marshall Chess club infact!

  2. You got it! Right around corner from the Marshall in fact! I was looking at a book "Around Washington Square" by Luther Haris (2003) and came across the photo. I just glanced around it but It seems like an excellent history of Greenwich Village.

  3. I'll have to check that book out. Excellent blog btw, I really enjoy it. Thank you.
