Jamaica Storage Sheds Improvements – Jamaica NY

Description

The federal Works Progress Administration worked to conduct repairs and alterations to several civic facilities in Queens as part of a $300,464 project begun in 1935. Facilities improved included the “Jamaica Storage Sheds” at 132nd St. and 150th Ave. The original structures don’t appear to be standing, but a municipal sanitation department storage lot is still located at the intersection.
