23rd Street and Haven Ave Looking West. Old Airstrip

This image shows an airstrip in the late 1950's at the end of 23rd Street past the railroad tracks that ran along Haven Avenue. 'There is a B-26 bomber at the end of the runway,' Bill McCloskey says. 'Bay Avenue did not exist and that runway was very, very short as the photo shows. If a private plane did not touch its wheels down immediately after the railroad tracks, it only stopped when it crashed into the side of the B-26!'
