number of two family houses is also a detriment to the single
residences. Market is very poor on two family houses al tho-ugp.
rentals are good. This is still regarded as a desirable and

units by renting the basements as separate flats. A convenient neighborhood for
the New York Central Railroad shop workers. Centr~l Avenue is supposed to be
the coming business street and, in fact, is solid business out to beyond King
Street. Likewise along this street are u number of residenti~l structures which
have been converted into business, rooming houses arid SDk"lil apartments.
