The Ravine, Looking West
The heart of the waterfront was photographed from the new Warburton Avenue Bridge soon after 1900. The railroad station is to the right, the National Conduit and Cable Company (predecessor of Anaconda) in the center, and the small, square jailhouse (called "the lock-up") in front of that. The bridge itself—with a street car that connected Hastings to Yonkers—appears in a picture taken about the same time from a little farther east. It shows the original Sugar Pond, created in the 19th century for a sugar refinery. A newer pond with the same name is used for ice skating in Hillside Park.
