The 'Elms of Kew' along Maple Grove Boulevard.
This vintage picture postcard of more than 90 years ago is entitled, "The Elms of Kew".  It shows the view looking north up a long vanished Kew Gardens street named Maple Grove Boulevard.  The Maple Grove Cemetery Administration Building on Kew Gardens Road is faintly visible in the distance.  Funeral processions made their way up this tree lined street from the Maple Grove Long Island Railroad Station where they arrived from both the City and Long Island.  Maple Grove Boulevard was located slightly west of today's Lefferts Boulevard north of Austin Street.
