Utica Avenue Improvements – Brooklyn NY

Description

The New York Times reported in 1941 that the WPA was to be involved with several street improvements in Brooklyn, including the “elimination of a mile-long traffic hazard on Utica Avenue between the trolley track areas.”

A trolley line ran along a 4.2-mile stretch of Utica Avenue between Fulton Street and Avenue N, making it difficult to determine the stretch of Utica Avenue affected by this project.
