Home of C.W. Bahrenberg
"There is much building activity in Kew Gardens, new houses being erected in all sections and homeseekers and plot buyers are there everyday, in numbers. ... The development has been phenomenal, as during the past two years over  houses have been built and sold. They are now occupied by their new owners, who in practically all instances came from Manhattan and Brooklyn.
The foresight of the owners in retaining the old trees and in sparing no expense have made this attractive residence section of Queens County the most beautiful, especially at this season."
