Yorkville – The Circus Comes to Town

Please Help Support The Yorkville Memories

The Circus Comes to Town

I’ve been collecting pictures of the Circus coming to New York City. I’ve been looking for some time to collect pictures of the Ringley Brothers – Barnum and Bailey Circus coming to town and as fairly lucky. I( decided to use this blog on Yorkville Resources to house these pictures that I did find and I supplemented this blog with some of the other circus pictures from other locations to help share the experiences that we were able to see with our eyes back in the day when the circus came to New York City passed though Yorkville, a community on the east side of Manhattan in New York City.
