Ridin’ Ol’ Paint

Did you know there was once a wall that ran along Wall Street? 
It’s true, to keep the Indians out.

Westchester Avenue in the Bronx follows an Indian horse Trail from the 1700’s and the 6 train is elevated over that. 

We owe the Native American’s for the path of the Bronx 6.

Go figure.

This elevated section near the Morrison Avenue Soundview stop debuted in 1919.

And probably hasn’t seen Ol' Paint since.
