Bronx New Deal - Photo #140 - Orchard Beach

"Orchard Beach, aerial view, June 15, 1937. Still under construction in the summer of 1937, a year after its official dedication, the white sands of the new 1.06-mile crescent-shaped Orchard Beach connected Hunter Island (foreground) with Rodman's Neck." Note; no pavilion yet, and water on the right where the parking lot would be. Orchard Beach, Kenneth R. Cobb, NYC Department of Records & Information Services, 22 May 2020.
