Title [Cortlandt Street Station Stairs and Nedick's Restaurant, Ninth Avenue Elevated]
Description Image showing the stairs to the Cortlandt Street Station of the Ninth Avenue Elevated and the Nedick's soda and food stand beneath it at the corner of Greenwich Street and Cortlandt Street. The inscription on the negative reads, "(31) 9th Ave R.R./Flashing's of Nedick's Sign to "L" Stairs/N.E. Cor Greenwich + Cortlandt Sts/8:18:40."
