Readerpix: Elysian Park in 1925


Jeff, who lives in Pennsylvania – found Hoboken411 – and wanted to share this retro photo of when his family lived in Hoboken:

Hoboken411 reader photo of the day – 4/6/2009

“I came across your web site while looking at old family pictures when they lived in Hoboken.

I found one that is of Elysian Park from around 1925. I’m still looking but I think it is of my Grandmother, aunt and mother with the war memorial in the background.”


[Stay tuned for tomorrow’s Readerpix entry! – Note: one reader’s photo(s) will be featured each day at approximately 11am. Unless your photo is time-sensitive – it will be published in the order it was received! Additional note: Your pictures will have a better chance of being published if they’re in “landscape” mode, as opposed to the taller “portrait” modes… ]

Compare this shot to how Elysian Park looks today after the jump…

This is the same statue today – with Maxwell Place in the background:
