Brooklyn Daily Standard Union 1929 Those Brooklynites who can remember when Nostrand avenue was in Bedford Village and Park Pace was known as Baltic street, may recall the picket fence that ran along the avenue. It was built to protect pedestrians from falling into the deep hollow near the present Maxwell Training School for Teachers. Just across what is now Park place, down in the hollow, near old Clove road, was the "Porters Lodge" shown in the picture. It was later raised to the present street level when the hollow was filled in. The structure, was at the entrance of to the estate of George B. FISK, fourth president of the Long Island Rail Road. The picture is used through the kindness of Mr. Winthrop Eaton BOWEN, of 521 Putnam Avenue, grandson of Mr. FISK. Return to PHOTO Main Return to BROOKLYN Main
