Huguenot Park-Area Road Development – Staten Island NY

Description

The federal Work Projects Administration put many men to work starting in 1935 with a Staten Island project that removed dangerous street ditches from roads throughout the borough. Granite block gutters and headers were installed by WPA laborers along a dozen streets, including from Huguenot Avenue from Amboy Road to the Staten Island Railway tracks and along Amboy Road between Huguenot Avenue and the same railroad.
