School Crossing Guard guides children crossing Amboy Road at the intersection of Yetman Ave, Tottenville.

Kids from Our Lady Help of Christians and P.S. 1 getting out of school…

The intersection as it appears today.
Taken on the same day in 1968. Opposite View, facing the store at 7420 Amboy.
That corner of Yetman & Amboy today…


  1. I would have been 9 or 10 when this was taken. I loved our ‘crossing guard’ lady. I never knew her name but she was always nice. Lived in Totttenville from birth (1957) till the Fall of 1987 when we moved to NW Florida. Dad, William J. Bausch, born and died in Tottenville, with brief times away for CCC’s and WWII. He loved ‘his’ Island.
