Historic streetlamps come to Myrtle Avenue

When you walk down the busy Myrtle Avenue in Glendale, you’ll soon see street lamps that will take you back in time.

Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley announced that she has allocated $700,000 for capital improvements along the commercial corridor between Fresh Pond Road and 86th Street. After meeting with residents and community members, Crowley chose to go with the historic streetlights from 80th Street to Woodhaven Boulevard. The city’s Public Design Commission approved the project earlier this month.

“I’m so pleased we can move forward with this project to beautify Myrtle Avenue and make it more attractive for consumers, residents and business owners,” Crowley said. “This commercial corridor lends in fueling our local economy, and it’s important to do what we can to keep it thriving.”
