Andrew P. Hartmann, City Engineer for the City
of Yonkers built this Queen Anne Style home at 6 Hollywood Avenue
circa 1890. Hartmann was one of several engineers involved in
planning the layout of the Crestwood community. When the house
was purchased by noted Bronx Realtor Frederick Nehring in 1923,
it was still lighted by gas lamps. Click on Photo

Westchester Avenue (c.1890)
This farm house and corner lot are part
of the last remaining four acres of Edgar Reynold's estate. The
Italianate-styled estate house at 500 Scarsdale Road was torn down
in the 1960s to make room for new houses. A few towering fir trees
remain of that earlier time.
