From Kayo: Here is a rare old one.  The view is northwest from a point roughly NY Avenue a bit south of West Park Avenue.  It shows the Long Beach US Coast Guard Station c. 1909.  It was taken C. 1909 and the station burned down c. 1927.

A careful peek at the left edge of the Station building you will seetwo small arrows.  The closest arrow to the CG building is the roof of Oscar’s Fishing Station which stood there into the 1960’s.  Oscars was on the bay at Pennsylvania Ave.  The other tiny arrow points to the former Flushing Fishing Club building which is on the land on the north side of Reynolds Channel which is part of The Village of Lawrence, NY.

If you stood in the middle of Delaware Ave and looked down the center of the street the FFC building would be aligned with the center of the street on the far shore. The FFC, long abandoned, fell down in the 1960’s.  I was in and around both buildings often as was a lifetime friend who I showed this to and we agree exactly with the locations.
