Up at 115th and Park Avenue, some exciting developments are happening at La Marqueta, a long time public market under the Metro-North tracks. We’ll be posting more about this neighborhood landmark in the coming months, but first we thought we’d share some photos we took in 2005. Tops Market used to be a tenant in La Marqueta years back selling lots of meat to local shoppers. Even though Tops is long gone, the memory lives on with these beautiful murals that grace the sides of the building adding some much needed character to Park Avenue. Hopefully the vibrant feeling these works of art bring to the street will soon be transferred to the inside of a revived La Marqueta
