February 1, 1947. At the bottom is the Village of Baychester. Wide body of water to the northeast is Givan's Creek. Just above the creek (filled during late 1960s) is the land that would become part of section five of Co-op City. The Hutchinson River Parkway and the precursor of what is now known as the New England Thruway create the point of the "V" on the left of the photo. Above that is the property that would become Freedomland. Source: Fairchild Aerial Surveys, Inc., New York office.
