Grand Street and Mt. Airy

Grand-Mt. Airy-Cistern_e

Here’s a nice postcard showing the intersection of Grand Street and Mt. Airy, circa 1900, when Croton’s streets were unpaved and the firehouse building you can see through the trees was a school. The circular object in the street on the right was the Mt. Airy cistern. There was another cistern at the intersection of Grand Street and Old Post Road where the dummy light is today.
