Digging the South Trench Broadway crossing at West 115th Street. Looking West towards the Hudson River. Left: Crepes and Cappucino (long gone; this corner is the site of a neverending series of short-lived businesses after the venerable Campus Corner folded in the late 1960s); Right: Ta-Kome (the tiny deli that was soon to become University Food Market). The cavity that is now Schapiro residence hall is visible at left center behind the back-hoe. Photo: Steve Jensen (May 1985).
