Of stoops and the city I sing! Previous

Down in front of Casey's
Old brown wooden stoop
On a summer's evening
We formed a merry group

Boys and girls together
We would dance and waltz
While 'ginny' played the organ
On the sidewalks of New York.

- "The Sidewalks of New York," lyrics and song by Charles B. Lawlor and James W. Blake, 1894

Boys sitting on stoop
Gang on stoop, West 47th Street, Manhattan
(Marcia Bricker)
