Here is a link to find old photos of places throughout New York City. I specifically choose the neighborhood Bay Ridge because this was what I researched on my essay.

The picture above is a photograph of my high school, Fort Hamilton High School. The school is located on Narrows and 85th street. This school was built in the 1940s, I don’t really see much change at all compared to the last time I biked passed it.

Here is a picture on the corner of 5th Ave and Bay Ridge Avenue/69th Street. We can see Alpine Cinema, trolleys, and their tracks. Those tracks are all gone now and had been replaced with the B63 bus that takes passengers from Cobble Hill to Shore Road.
