Re: Nighttime Shot of 3rd Ave El at 67th Street (1953)

What a memory to have and to keep! What a New York memory!
That made me remember how the photos by Larry Stelter's father
in his book, conveyed so well, how the upper east side on 3rd avenue was a cluster of neighborhoods, around and near each el station.
They were certainly places where all the locals knew each other - and the assorted regulars seen every day, or heard, like your sax man - these could really be called urban hamlets in the middle of Manhattan!

And even to be able to hear the heavy 'clinking' noiese of the turnstyles, and the "breathing" sounds of the MUDC's in motion and stopped - the soundtrack of a long vanished New York.

And Gershwin ballads are so right for the saxophone...
