As many regular MyInwood readers know, I love collecting oral histories and old photos of the neighborhood. A while back I put out a call for for memories on the old Inwood Lanes and the response was overwhelming. Within days readers sent in photos of the pro-shop and so much more. Truly amazing.
This time around I’ve chosen Bickford’s, once located on Broadway and Dyckman. From what I’ve heard Bickford’s was once a neighborhood institution. The accompanying article from the Heights-Inwood newspaper from 1974 describes the closing of another Bickford’s located on 181st.
If you have memories or photos of either location, please share them with me and other readers. Just post a comment below and I’ll get ahold of you.
Thanks in advance. I hope you are up to this latest Inwood challenge.
