Our friends at Ephemeral New York recently dug up this vintage postcard from around 1910 which shows Riverside Drive just south of 155th street along with a spooky old house.

Here is a peaceful and placid Riverside Drive at 155th Street around 1910, well before the George Washington Bridge ushered in residential development and crazy car traffic.

For reference, here is a Google Street View of what the same area looks like today.
