I got this book called Neighborhoods of Queens for Christmas from a friend. Below are 2 photos from the Maspeth section:
There are no elevated subways in Maspeth.
The scene at left is on Grand Avenue in Elmhurst, not 69th Street in Maspeth. (That's why its owner cleverly named it "The Grandstand".)
The author may have picked up on these mistakes if she hadn't moved to Long Island.
