Maspeth in the 1940s - NewtownHistorical
Here we see Grand Avenue from 68th Street, looking northeast.

The building to the extreme right is where Joey's Pizza is today at 69th Street and Grand Avenue. Behind the trolley is a set of buildings at Borden Avenue and 69th Street, one of which contained Maspeth Federal Savings, which had opened in 1947.

The rest of the buildings seen along Grand Avenue were demolished in the 
1950s to make way for the Long Island Expressway. From left to right were 
United Cigars, Maspeth Keg O Beer, Alps Lunch and an exterminator's office.

The trolley shown was replaced by the Q58 bus route.
