Nicks Street Repaving – Elmira NY

Description

Elmira, New York’s former Nick Street, which no longer exists, was repaved by the federal Civil Works Administration (CWA) in 1934.

“Another project approved is the repaving of Nicks Street, which connects State Street and Exchange Place in the rear of stores on East Water Street. The stones will be removed and relaid on a new foundation.”

State Street, replaced by Route 14, no longer exists in this location; Exchange Place and Nicks Street have both been removed as well. However, old municipal maps, such as the one shown on this page, present the area in question with all relevant streets intact.
