Visiting New York City's Cape Cod, the Bronx's Harding Park

New, 16 comments

Scouting New York was just driving around the Bronx last week, minding his own business, when he stumbled upon a neighborhood he'd never seen before of tiny houses and narrow streets almost too small for cars. In his latest photo essay, he explores this neighborhood, known as Harding Park. Many of the houses date from the 1920s, when landowner Thomas Higgs divided up the neighborhood to build rental bungalows meant to serve as summer homes for New Yorkers. After World War II, some of the bungalows were occupied on a more permanent basis, and while several have been modified to accommodate year-round use, others still have their 1920s look.
