Vintage Photo: Old VA Parking Lot, Where Bogey Got Dumped in The Harder They Fall (1956) NYC 1988

I remember when I saw the 1956 movie The Harder They Fall. Humphrey Bogart was a fight reporter who got in bad with Rod Steiger who was hoodwinking a poor schnook of a boxer, a huge guy who couldn’t fight his way out of a paper bag. I had just started working at the Manhattan VA, and was flabbergasted when I saw the bad guys dump Bogey at the flagpole of the place where I work.

This parking lot no longer exists. It was replaced by an Outpatient Clinic.  I loved it when the world was in black and white.

  1. Wondering if it would be possible if you could share one of those photographs so I could post it on my “Harder They Fall” article. I would of course give you full credit and a link to your website.
