A 1932 Nehring Brothers ad for Washington Heights Apartments

Mark Veasey Wilmington, Delaware

Wonderful website! I was born at Columbia Presbyterian in 1964 and raised on 160th & Broadway. The neighborhood was largely Dominican when I was there. I can still hear the congas and cow bells at night. Old men playing dominos on the corner. Playing handball down at the river. I went to school at Horace Mann in Riverdale. I love Washington Heights. Whenever I visit NYC I always stop by the old apartment building just to look around. We are so lucky to have been raised in this diverse environment! markveasey@comcast.net
