Yorkship
Square


YORKSHIP SQUARE... the name taken from the then nearby New York Shipbuilding Corporation... is the heart of a planned community built in the 1910s to house workers at the shipyard.

Do you have an Yorkship Square memory or picture? Let me know by e-mail so it can be included here.
