The Very Fashionable Corner Of Smith And President Streets Early 1900's

The Parkhouse of Carroll Park as seen from Smith Street, early 1900's

Same park house in 2007. It is the same building, but the
center has been entirely closed off

The Carroll Park building as seen from President Street looking towards Smith

In 2007, same view

The opposite street corner of President and Smith Street.

The building housed a coffee shop. It was most likely taken down when the subway tunnel was built right underneath to replace the street car which ran along Smith

The rather ugly building which was built on the empty lot about 5 or 6 years ago.

I love history. In particular, I love coming across old photographs, especially those showing buildings of my neighborhood, Carroll Gardens. Here are three really interesting ones depicting one particular street corner. What could be better. This together with the photos I posted of long gone brownstones just two blocks away at Smith and First provides quite a glimpse into C.G.'s past.
