Two Sites along South Broadway many times just looked over

The first two pictures are of the old Freemason Temple located across the street from St. Joseph's Medical Center. Its in disrepair and no longer in use. It might be abandoned but we are not really sure. Back in its prime in the early part of the 20th Century and the late 19th Century, Yonkers was controlled by Protestants and many of them were Freemasons. Many of the decisions that made Yonkers what it is today happened in this large stone building. Hopefully the interior is still intact (if it is, it probably is magnificent). The third and last picture is of Abraham Lincoln. His statue is located in Lincoln Park which is at the intersection of Broadway and Mclean Ave.

  1. Wasn't that building once a Jewish Community Center back in the 60's?
