436

The St. James Park Recreation Center in St. James Park, Bronx NY, April 2015. This long, sprawling building (see next image) was constructed in 1937, almost certainly with New Deal design, funds, and labor, completing the 3-year redesign and reconstruction of St. James Park during the New Deal / Robert Moses era; see press release.
