Pennsylvania
Avenue


PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE ran west from 17 South 8th Street between Carman and Federal Streets for a half a block, ending at the rear of 10 Fogarty Avenue. The street was dilapidated by the 1920s. By the spring of 1932 there was only one occupied house, and by the end of World War II there were no buildings standing. 

Do you have an Pennsylvania Avenue story or picture. Let me know by e-mail so it can be included here.

HOMELESS COLORED MAN IS INJURED
IN COLLAPSE OF 2 ABANDONED HOUSES

Two abandoned brick dwellings on Pennsylvania avenue above Tenth Street weakened by the removal of wooden framework and the recent storm, collapsed last night, injuring a homeless colored man who had sought refuge in one or them.

The house was a twin structure and had been untenanted for some time. Only one house in the row of ten houses on the street is occupied. The building came tumbling down with a crash at 10:55 PM. A telephone call to police headquarters brought Motorcycle Policemen Thomas Kauffman and Frank Evans to the scene,

Screams issued from the debris and the two policemen dug into the bricks, finally reaching the man, He gave his name at Cooper Hospital as Harry O'Neill, 60, no address. He was treated for bruises of the body and cuts of the face and body. He said he sought shelter for the night on the first floor of one of the houses.
