Grymes Hill-Area Road Surfacing – Staten Island NY

Description

The federal Work Projects Administration put many men to work starting in 1935 with a Staten Island street repair and maintenance project along roads throughout the borough. The streets, many of which in New York City were still unpaved, were surfaced with bituminous macadam. Roads paved included the stretches of:

  • Van Cortlandt Avenue between Clove Road and Rugby Ave.
  • Rugby Avenue between Grand Ave. and Highland Ave.
  • Grand Avenue between Rugby Ave. and Victory Blvd.
  • Dudley Avenue between Clove Road and Rugby Ave.
