Maspeth in the 1940s - NewtownHistorical
Grand Avenue east of 71st Street, looking west.

Teens wait for the trolley in front of Nash's Pharmacy while a policeman
directs traffic at the intersection. We see Tom's Food Store, Fiederer Bakery and Walter's Delicatessen on the right. On the left is Janison's Jewelry Store, a candy store, Burton's Plumbing Supply, Leo's Shoes, a store selling Venetian Blinds and Sontag's Paint and Hardware Store. Though the stores have changed, the streetscape looks very much the same today.
