Description

The WPA allocated $14,707 toward a project begun in May 1938 to construct sidewalks and conduct a handful of other improvements along certain roads in East Patchogue, N.Y. The project was said to provide labor for 50 men.

According to The Suffolk County News, sidewalks were to be built “on the east side of Dunton avenue” between South Country Road and Robinson Blvd. and “about a mile and a quarter along the north side of Robinson boulevard,” roughly centered about Dunton Ave.

“600 feet of curb and gutter where needed” were to be constructed on Robinson Blvd. as well.

Note: It is probable that what was then referred to as “Robinson Boulevard” is present-day Montauk Highway.

    Can, they put a sidewalk in on the Dunton Avenue that extends to Martha Avenue and then on route 101 near the houses,..??? It would be a lot more convenient and would help people get to the hospital.
