Amazing and coloured photo, Hank!! Cheers, Isabel Contest:January
Yes Isabel, the colors are amazing on these old streets. They're like a patchwork quilt of buildings. Thanks for your comments and for visiting.

Very good photo....
Greetings from Brazil!
Thank you Kuka and Marcio. As you can tell from my comments, this street has become very special to me since I started the project of tracing my roots through photos. I'm glad you joined me on my journey.
Best regards from New York via New Jersey.
As you say it in your comment above, a hundred years ago the town was different. The shots taken around 1890 by Jacob Riis show it. Thank you Hank for sharing the images and what is behind them.
Thank you akervan for your kind words. It is not an area with which I am familiar so this quest to find my roots was particularly interesting for me.
I am sorry, Iacuba, but Google Translate doesn't seem to be working today so I can only answer in English. That is why I went downtown to Henry Street. It is the area where many of the immigrants to the United States settled when they first arrived...along with my great grand parents who came from the area around Suwałki Poland.
Я сожалею, Iacuba, но Google Переводят, кажется, не работает сегодня, таким образом я могу только ответить на английском языке. Именно поэтому я пошел в центр к Генри Стриту. Это - область, где многие из иммигрантов к Соединенным Штатам обосновались, когда они сначала прибыли... наряду с моими великими великими родителями, которые прибыли из области вокруг Польши Suwałki.

I really like this one. I almost feel like I've bin there. Unfortunately I only see views like that in the movies. Best regards from Norway
I agree, Seafood, and I thank you for your comments. This shot has had a strong pull for me too, ever since I took it. Best regards,
Hank, in what area lived Henry Miller in N.Y.??
He wrote 'tropic of cancer'
Hi Bosja. Henry Miller was born in a part of Mahattan called Yorkville. That's around East 86th Street and York Avenue photo courtesy of jonathan.nyc. I'm not sure he wasn't a block further south because I know that corner and I remember all the buildings being tall. This area was heavily populated by people of German descent (which Miller was), and came to be known as Germantown among the New Yorkers who knew the area.
Merci Hank, i like reed Miller.
you so kind. God bless America!!!!
You're welcome bosja.
