Which Historic Charm? Pt. 4

March 8, 2011

Here’s a great shot of the historic Hulbert Mansion at 49 Prospect Park West, which is now home to the Poly Prep Lower School.  You can make out the overhead cable of the trolley line.  The picture was taken in the 1930s.  As others have noted, street design is never sacrosanct, but rather it’s something that changes with time and that’s re-evaluated as new technology and challenges become a part of our world.

See other great pictures in parts 1, 2, and 3.

    Great post. These NBBL people are full of it with their claims of historic desecration. They just want to drive and park. None of them are driving Model T’s or horses exactly. These pictures should go on signs at the meeting on Thursday.
