Historical Documents

The house at 45 4th Street is in the neighborhood of Carroll Gardens, part of Brooklyn’s 10th Ward. It has since been demolished, but according to the below Sanborn map from 1915 the building they lived in was a four family brick building. Mary’s death certificate classified the “character” of the building as a “tenement.”
