E. 106thSt

East 106th St., from Fifth Ave at least over to Lex, was (and may still be) the path of a creek that drains out of Harlem Meer in Central Part.  If you drive over it today, it somehow seems especially spacious...

Welcome to NY Bits

This is a blog for people to post interesting info about NYC. For example, Canal St. is named for the canal that runs under it that drains a spring that fed a pond that used to be where the courthouses are in lower Manhattan. The pond was called the Collect Pond.
