Notes
Content: Printed on image: "Zoning ..The dotted bands along each side of the Shore Parkway and Southern Parkway have been determined as a residential district in order to protect these parkways and to promote a desirable residential development next to them. The two solid black areas indicate proposed industrial centers ; one situated at Mill Basin and the other at the head of the bay near the Nassau County Line. Both of these are logical industrial sites, and are adequate in size to provide for industrial expansion for a great many years to come. In addition there are existing business districts along the Rockaway peninsula shown in black cross-hatching on the map. The remainder of the region bounded on the north by the Shore and Southern Parkways, on the south by Jamaica Bay, on the east by Rockaway Boulevard, and on the west by Flatbush Avenue and Marine Park, should be zoned predominantly for residential purposes, exclusive of the waterfront and bay which should be devoted to recreation." Written on border: "Dept. Works, NYC, 1938" Includes additional text.
