Wow.  That price tag is incredible.  I wonder how much the city and state budgets were back then? Perhaps a prize of unification or was the area an earlier part of New York City?

Nick those photos are incredible, thank you.

It’s incredible to think that the Broadway sewering of Tibbetts Brook which to me is an environmental tragedy was seen maybe exclusively as an improvement (over unpaved roads and outhouses).  I wonder when drinking water was provided and if that was simultaneous.
