Maspeth in the 1940s - NewtownHistorical
57th Avenue at Mazeau Street, Looking east.

Some things have changed at this intersection over the years - namely the erection of PS58 School of Heroes where commercial enterprises
previously stood on the left. Also absent today are the Elmhurst gas
tanks seen off in the distance. It appears that road crews were cutting a new road - 72nd Place - through Garlinge Triangle when this photo was taken.
