Signs of change on Tenth Avenue: 58th Street — 72nd Street

Continuing on up from 58th Street to 72nd Street. To follow along open a second window in your browser, and go to Tenth Avenue 2006 & 2010 and scroll down or click through to image #172.

As before, I’ll take the corners of each intersection in the clockwise order NE, SE, SW, NW. At each corner I'll describe the 2006 sign(s) of change first, then the 2010 sign(s) of change.
