Horse Brook briefly returns!

Flood insurance and driving hazards notwithstanding, sometimes my parents dream of having a home on the waterfront. This month, their dream came true, with a sewer project tearing up two blocks of 62 Drive in Forest Hills.While it is a routine sewer project, this section of the street once followed the stream bed of Horse Brook, which was buried in time for the 1939 World's Fair by the future Long Island Expressway.

The idea of having a canal in the middle of our street makes me want to call up our distant relatives from Amsterdam for a visit.
