V-J Day Block Party: 1945

V-J Day Block Party: 1945

Lots of streets in New York City had block parties to celebrate the end of World War II. This picture was taken on 46th Street between 10th and 11th Avenue in the old area known as Hell's Kitchen. That was one street away from the piers where the soldiers and sailors used to land when they came home from the war.

Paddy's Market

I'm writing a book on food and culture in Hell's Kitchen. Have you had any luck in your search for Paddy shots? Or photos of any kind? I haven't and my deadline is March 31st. YIPES!!

Hell's Kitchen . . . Paddy's Market

Great photo. Do you live in NYC?
It would be great to see any photos you might have of the old Paddy's Market in Hell's Kitchen. The market existed for several decades, the 1800's into the early 1900's.

Thanks for sharing this bit of Hell's Kitchen history.
