    I can’t get over all the commas after each station and a period after the last one, not to mention all the other (to me, extraneous) commas and periods. I have to think the typesetter must have had his knuckles rapped too many times by some overbearing teacher with a ruler in her holster.

    *cough* Hartsdale.

    And if your story about Crestwood is anything like the other stories you’ve told me about stations, then no, I have no desire to know.

    p.s.: The intersection of Central Park Avenue and Hartsdale Avenue was named “Hart’s Corners” after Robert Hart, one of these farmers who successfully bid for the land, and in the mid-19th century the entire area became known as “Hartsdale.” —Wikipedia

    CG; I marvel at your unsurpassed abilty to aquire such scarce and rare vintage documents; it’s amazing that such a old and unusual document only peripheral to the Harlem RR even exists after such a long time-period.

    I hope your aquisition of such historical documents will never cease, and that we will perpetualy be delighted and astonished when you present your most recent “find” to us.
