Kings Bay Rising, Redux

Above is a photo that I missed when I put together yesterday’s piece, Kings Bay Rising, which is a shame because it is, in my opinion, the most striking of all the photographs. It’s taken on the corner of Coyle Street, looking east down Voorhies Avenue… before there really was a street or avenue to look down. This area was criss-crossed by dirt roads before the completion of Kings Bay Little League and the nearby housing developments, a jarring fact given today’s congested roadways.

Below are two photos we received this morning from Andy Baum, who wanted to add to our Kings Bay collection.
