1934 + 1938 - Extra Place

Photos from the NYPL Digital Gallery 1934 + 1938.  Learn more about Extra Place from a post from I pit up a few days ago....

If you zoom into the 1938 photo you can see workers dismantling some early-mid 1800's housing that used to line 2nd street (see the post with the comparison of maps from different time periods for a refresher)

The La Mama building is on the left, and looks much the same as it does today (now that the usual wheat-pasting and graffiti items have been removed).
