Berkshire Avenue looking from
Castlegate Avenue southeast towards Queensboro Avenue.
This is Berkshire Avenue in
1924, from Castlegate Avenue looking towards the southeast. Residential
development was booming and new homes were being built all along this
neighborhood artery. The street was paved in red brick from Pioneer
Avenue to Queensboro. A new 36 inch relief sewer had just been laid
to support development southeast of Queensboro Avenue. The street-paving
would soon be completed with brick extending from Queensboro to Freedom
Avenue. Thes photos show Berkshire Avenue from Castlegate Avenue southeast
to Freedom Avenue, and showcases many of the homes in place at
