Re: High St/Brooklyn Bridge - Where is High St?

Modern aerial photos show the two streets (RC Place and High St) to be not aligned, so you appear correct. Tellingly, there are no buildings with old facades along RC Place which might indicate an ancient street. There is an NYCTA building on the north side with bricked up arches, but it is not clear if it was ever mid-block. It does extend north to the former Sands Street.

Another bit of proff for your theory is that the Adams Street entrance is set back from RC Place, where it would have been on the south side of the old High Street.
