Description

The Work Projects Administration (WPA) constructed a new station house for the NYPD’s 110th precinct in Elmhurst. The project, built for $100,000, is still in use. Inside is a plaque crediting the WPA, with the date 1939, though the public does not generally receive permission to photograph it.
