Fourth Place near Court Street Brooklyn: 1931

The photo comes from the New York Library Archive.  This shot, taken on 6/25/31 shows Fourth Place, facing Smith Street towards the gas tanks.  This is a PL Sperr photo.  In my previous posts, I showed the gas tanks at this location near the Gowanas canal. This scene shows how the area looked during the construction of the IND Smith Street - 8th Avenue Brooklyn line.  This photo shows the area where the viaduct makes it descent into the subway near Carrol Street.  According to one newspaper report today, the Smith-9th Street station, not too far from where this photograph was taken, is one of the 11 most scenic stations in the New York City subway system.
