Sunset Park Had a Lake

Sunset Park Had a Lake, originally uploaded by veesvision.
For years, there have been rumors that there was once a lake then I finally saw a picture.

Some interesting historic info by Flickr member tony653:
"The sunset park lake was stocked with carp by local residents, for their fishing pleasure. An elderly resident, years ago, told me that he and his friends would catch the fish and sell them to a 5th avenue fish market for sale to the local community."
