Since I started the greendougherty.Blog, it was inevitable that I would start a Yorkville spin every once in a while. It’s that time and we’ll start with the Streets of Yorkville. In this case, I chose 89th Street because it left a special niche in my heart for those moments from the past.
I added a picture of the Park Lane Movie House on 90th Street because my little story relates to looking at the other side of the Park Lane Movie House that is on 89th Street on the corner of 1st Avenue, on the north side of the street. Across from the Park Lane is a build that had an alcove of sorts that one could sit in. It was on the street side and I guess that was why the window was shut off and bricked off but enough for one to sit in.
It was in this alcove that I was able to meet one of the lovelies of 89th Street. I remember a story that I heard about a machine gun that was place on the roof of this movie house and was discussing this fact with the lass. I always wondered if it was folklore or what.
For now, a few pictures of 89th Street. Did you live on 89th Street? Share some memories.
I have this building as an old building on 89th Street and York Avenue and found the address but have since misplaced it. There is a steeple of sorts in the background. So, if that rings a bells with anyone, please let me know if you can shed some light on this building and its location.
200 East 89th Street with Apartment 38D. Yeah, take a look out the window and see Yorkville from the 38th floor.

Now we’ll see if any of the addresses are wrong from anyone real familiar with the neighborhood.
That’s it for now.
