Sixth Avenue

9th Street to 15th Street

Unknown

Mr. Cornelius E. Donnellon, many of whose mansions adorn the city, is now building ten two story and basement, Philadelphia brick dwellings, on the corner of Sixth avenue and Fourteenth street.  They were started about a year ago, and will be finished in a month or so. These houses will be let at the same rate as an ordinary flat, and they seem to be most suited for families in ordinary circumstances. Some of these buildings are let and seem to give entire satisfaction. -Brooklyn Eagle, November 07, 1882, p. 1 ("Homes").

A NEW AMUSEMENT HALL

Being Built in In South Brooklyn by Edward P. Day

There is now in course of erection on Ninth street and Sixth avenue, an amusement hall, which when finished, will be the best place of its kind in South Brooklyn. The owner is Edward. P. Day, the proprietor of a similar resort in West Brooklyn. It is to be given the name of "Arvena," which is an ancient Greek word meaning "place of assemblage." The structure will be 36 feet wide by 60 feet deep, and the main entrance will be on Ninth street, with another on Sixth avenue. The building material is brick with brown stone trimmings. The top floor will be devoted to the use of lodges, and adjoining it will be a dance hall. The decorations in the building will be elaborate and it will be furnished in exquisite style.

Mr. S. B. Oulton has recently completed a row of twelve houses on the west side of 6th avenue, occupying the entire block between 13th and 14th streets. On each corner is a store 20x45 feet on lot 90 feet, and between are ten two story and basement with sub-cellar dwellings, containing ten rooms and all improvements. It shows what a demand there is for this class of houses, when it is stated that they are all occupied. The stores on the corner are three stories in height, including store floor. On 13th and 14th streets, adjoining these stores, this gentleman has just completed four similar houses, two on each street, with exception of dimensions, which are greater.
