  1. Excellent and clear photo, Mark. Are those the new towers behind the Woolworth bldg.? The name Woolworth really brings back memories for me, of shopping on Canal Street with my mom and sister and getting lunch or a chocolate soda at Woolworth’s lunch counter. And later, when I was a young mom, taking the bus with little 2 yr old Cheryl to shop at the Oak St. Woolworth’s, which is where I bought everything for her, from her tiny shoes & socks to her toys for Christmas.

  2. All of the other buildings in this photo, front and back, were constructed after the Woolworth Bldg. I don’t have many memories of actual Woolworth’s stores, but this bldg sort of signifies home for me since we can see it from our window.
