Time has not been kind to the elegant dwellings. Subsequent owners and landlords have removed much of the charm of the place, however, on a snowy day in 1947, the Creighton Apartments still looked lovely. The historic photo was snapped by the Palmer family who happened to be going for a walk with their toddler, Janet, just after the snow ended. To learn more about the these apartments check out Paul Diebold's research in Greater Irvington (1997).
