Maspeth in the 1940s - NewtownHistorical
South side of 57th Avenue, east of 72nd Place.

Many of the wood frame houses along this old stretch of road date back to the 19th century and some even pre-date the Civil War. The home on the left is a rare survivor during today’s era which encourages maximization of profit, multi-unit dwellings and absentee landlordism. The brick home pictured here is an attractive and unique 2-family abode which stands out from cookie-cutter style homes built in Maspeth today.
