Dubois Avenue Yard Improvements – Staten Island NY

Description

The federal Works Progress Administration (WPA) put men to work beginning in 1935 on an improvement project at the city-owned Dubois Avenue Yard. A $125,473 project involved the construction of two extensions to garage buildings at the then-Highway Department facility: one 100′ x 50′ and the other 63′ x 50′. A $84,000 project entailed “building repair and alterations” at the facility. The site (albeit with newer construction) is still in use by New York City’s Department of Transportation.
