Tubby Hook, Then and Now

One of my kayaking clubs is near Tubby Hook, an old name for the Western end of Manhattan at the end of Dyckman Street, in Inwood.

Recently a club member found photos from the late thirties. Using Google Maps to approximate the same view, it’s clear, sadly how far usage of the waterfront has fallen.
