Aerial View Knickerbocker Construction

I got a copy of this photo from Steve Stanley from the Knickerbocker Village Business Office last Thursday. I was looking to see if there were any back issues of the KV newsletter available. Steve was nice enough to share what he had, but the extra copies he had only went back to 1996. More to come. This photo (circa 1933 I guess) shows how the eastern court was constructed first, thus the reason those buildings were named A,B,C, etc. What is also visible are the buildings that were replaced by the Smith Houses in the 1950's and the activity of the docks on the East River. There's also in view, (if you look closely after clicking for an enlargement) the ubiquitous Fletcher's Kastoria advertisements of that era.
