Aerial view of Williamsbridge Oval Playground in 1938, open for business,
exhibiting its original symmetrical design. Looking west. According to the
central athletic field was for both football and baseball. Now it's for
football and fútbol. Notice the 1758 Valentine-Varian
at its original location on the northwest corner of Bainbridge
Avenue and Van Cortlandt Avenue East; in 1965, it was moved to its current
location across Bainbridge Avenue to the edge of the Park to make way for a
new apartment building.
