This photo of York Avenue and many other photos of the Yorkville neighborhood are located in the New York Public Library's Digital Collection.

The horrible local bakery, Cake Masters, was located on this block. My mother broke a tooth on one of their Strawberry Shortcakes. The Mansion Diner later appeared on the northeast corner of 86th Street. Their fine coffee saved the lives of hundred of doormen on 86th Street and East End Avenue.
