This ranch house was built along 69th Street at 58th Road in Maspeth circa 1915 when the street was called "Juniper Avenue." There were numerous fruit trees and a lush lawn on the land surrounding it. The trees had already been removed and the landscape destroyed prior to the taking of this photo.
The one-family house was torn down earlier this year to make way for 4 units of Queens Crap. The plumbing work required for the houses snarled traffic along 69th Street, a major road, for almost 2 weeks.
