 The busy intersection of Broadway and East 10th Street in 1884. Chester Alan Arthur was the 21st President of the United States from 1881-85 and Franklin Edson was the 85th Mayor of New York City from 1883-84. The Victorian Gothic-Revival style St. Paul the Apostle Church on Columbus Avenue was completed in 1884, as was the Madison Avenue Bridge and The Dakota Residential building. On the right, we can see the edge of Grace Historic Parish Church, completed in 1847.  Photo: nycvintageimages
