Maspeth in the 1940s - NewtownHistorical
Jesus Saves!

Religious zeal apparently was present in Maspeth in 1940. Here we see a boulder painted with the slogan, “Jesus saves” in the shadow of the gas tanks just past 74th Street, heading east toward Elmhurst. This isn’t the type of graffiti one might see in Maspeth today.
