Freedom Avenue - 1924
Freedom Avenue in 1924 was still a dirt roadway linking Merrick with Woodbourne Avenue, with cross-streets at Wareman, Creedmoor, Chelton and Berkshire Avenues. Residential home construction in this area was happening at a rapid pace. Other infrastructure improvements were coming. The transformation of Freedom from a dirt road to a modern street would be complete when the sewers were in place and the street paved in red brick and belgium block. The horse and wagon was still the primary form of transportation for construction materials.
