A Nostalgic Moment – A Few Nostalgic Yorkville Memories in Pictures – March 27, 2016

This nostalgic look back is in Yorkville, a Community on the east Side of Manhattan. A few items did not show any pictures in my search but I did find a picture of the era for you to see.

The old Fink’s Commercial Bakery was on 76th or 77th Street, east of York Avenue. This was as close as possible to return to those special moments when you stopped by to pick up a loaf of rye bread to bring home for your mother. Oh yeah! I would stop by the candy store on the same block to buy a cold Pepsi Cola to drink on the way home while you were chewing a piece of rye bread.


Some of the restaurants on 86th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues. If you couldn’t find a place to eat on 86th Street, you really had a problem.

Here is a front view of the old style milk truck that were a frequent visitors to those houses in Yorkville when milk was delivered. I remember on those winter mornings when the weather was pretty cold and you could see the milk bottles with their cardboard caps pop in the cold weather and the cream ooze out the top of the bottle.
