Watering the Horses
The stone horse-watering trough that still remains on the east side of Broadway was once a regular stopping place on the main road north from New York City. A sign for the Farragut Inn above the already outdated trough as this 1932 photograph attempts to lure travelers into the village and the Inn at the corner of Warburton Avenue and Spring Street. Inset: The "Tallyho" with its liveried footmen passes through Hastings on its way between the Ardsley Country Club and Manhattan.
El abrebadero, que todavía existe en el lado este de Broadway, fue alguna vez un lugar habitual de parada en esta vía, que era la ruta principal hacia el norte de Nueva York. En esta fotografía de 1932, un letrrero de la posada Farragut, colocado sobre el ya pasado de moda abrebadero, intenta atraer a los viajeros al pueblo y la posada localizada en la esquina de la avenida Warburton y la calle Primavera. Recuado: la carroza, con su conductor uniformado, solía pasar por Hastings en su recorrido entre Manhattan y El Club Campestre de Ardsley.
