Overview


First settled in 1643, Throggs Neck-Pelham Bay lies along the west bank of Eastchester Bay in the Bronx. It was once an area of grand estates and farms and was home to some of the wealthiest people in America, including Collis P. Huntington and Catherine Lorillard Wolfe. Discover the history of the early residents of the community and its place in an ever-changing America in this unique and unprecedented pictorial collection. Throggs Neck-Pelham Bay offers a unique glimpse into the past, through carefully preserved images and a thoroughly researched text. Readers will delight in the memories of yesteryear and the images of a young and undaunted America. The images in this volume cover all of the communities included in the charter granted to John Throckmorton by the Dutch in 1642. Called Vriedlandt or "Land of Peace" by Dutch authorities, the area eventually fell prey to the burdens of war during the American Revolution. The images in Throggs Neck-Pelham Bay depict all aspects of life, from work to play. View the early modes of transportation used by the residents, the schools and churches they attended, the homes they lived in, and the activities they enjoyed.
