Great use in referencing old deeds to find area namings.   Of interest is the reference to a Doggwood Brooke in the 1685 deed to Frederick Philipse .  Today just up the road East from Adlerbrook is a 50 Townhouse complex built in 1953 called Dogwood Close. While many local area names are real estate sales names (eg. Riverdale, Marble Hill, Fieldston) that have no real historic precedent its good to see that some real estate and builders did perhaps do their research   before naming these streets and buildings in this area ( Hadley Ave , Adlerbrook Rd, and Dogwood Close )
