Old Photographs Of Staten Island

Recommended Posts

I have a couple of old photographs of different areas of Staten Island. These photographs are from the collection of a man by the name of Joe Testagrose, and they show vintage city buses that were once in service. I am not a die-hard fan of them, but, in my opinion, I think they are aesthetically pleasing, due to their rather unique design.

 

The scenery is great as well.

 

A vintage bus near Grant City on Staten Island. Early 1960s.

At the corner of Victory Blvd. and St. Mark's Place. 1970s. Bay Street is in the background. St. George section of Staten Island.

New Dorp Lane and Edison Street. 1971. I personally like this photograph.

Last, but not least, is Hylan Blvd. and Richmond Avenue. 1981. This area has really changed over the years. Martin Paints is no longer at the corner. A C.V.S. is now there.
