291,293 and 297 Broad Street at the corner of Targee - 1931
When I was a kid the building on the left housed a canine patrol. Its logo was a snarling dog's head. My sister's dance school was originally in the same building on the Targee Street side. It was called "Charing's Dance School" (or something very similar)
Broad and Targee, northwest corner - 1931
Same corner today - It was an empty lot even when I was a kid in the mid seventies - I remember doing a cleanup of it when I was in the Weblos or Boy Scouts which would have been around 1977.
Broad Street, east from Gordon Street - 1931
Today - the corner store was candy store with a soda fountain when I was kid. I only went once or twice but my mom and sister went there a bunch when she went to dance classes.
Broad, Canal and Tompkins - 1931
Today - Back in the early nineties the pizzeria (and as long as I can remember the building in the foreground has housed one) was called "Two Crusts". I don't get why but it did make us laugh when we ordered and they picked up the phone and said it.
