NOTE : CITY LINE
In 1892, Brooklyn city still had not extended to many areas of
Kings County. In 1894, Flatbush, Gravesend and New Utrecht
were added and in 1896, Flatlands to finally make Brooklyn
co-extensive with Kings Co.
So, the city line was the boundary between Brooklyn and
these other towns.
The 8th Ward extended south to what is now 60th street (not Ave.)
and east to a slanted line between 7th and 9th Avenues.
The 9th Ward extended to Montgomery Street, near Prospect Park.
Incidentally, check these ward boundaries again, it looks
like the 9th goes to 4th Ave.,
and then Union Street beyond Flatbush Ave.
