Re: Why weren't crew facilities added at Norwood?

Brooklyn used to be a city in its own right, but of course it does have neighborhoods.

Queens was never as city in its own right, It was a county that had both cities and villages within it. In New York State cities are incorporated and have a city government -- Villages otoh are not incorporated. They may have a post office, but they do not have government. They rely on the township or Count for its governance.

So Queens was a county that extended to the Suffolk County Line, and when it came to be annexed into NYC, the towns of Hempstead, North Hempstead and Oyster Bay oppted out and became Nassau County.

So queens always had city and village names within it.

Da Bronix on the otter hand was part of Westchester that NYC bought (?) from them. It too should have had village names, but it was mostly farm land at that time. I presume that the transfer of the Broncks was much earlier than the annexation of Queens, thus the Manhattan street numbering system continued up into the Bronix.

Now as for Norwood, that was a plot between the IND and Kimberley Clark to sell more adult diapers.
