to see a similar shot taken on 82nd Road.]
What a difference 64 years makes. These photographs show the view on 83rd Avenue looking toward Kew Gardens Road from Queens Boulevard to Kew Gardens Road. The top floor of the Manse on Kew Gardens Road can be seen directly ahead. P.S. 99 is clearly visible in the 1941 photograph, but mostly blocked in the 2004 picture by the Court Plaza Apartments. The old houses along the left side of the street are gone, having been replaced by apartment buildings. Pictures dated 1941 and 2004. Click on images to enlarge.
If you have pictures of yourself showing any Kew Gardens locale in the background, email me high resolution jpegs and I will post them here as space permits.
