Re: Sutter Ave. Rutland Road station

The Sutter Avenue Brownsville neighborhood was built up with tenements starting in the late 1890s. Brownsville was never a pleasant area. Generally crowded and rundown. It was a predominantly Jewish area into the early 1960s. East Flatbush was a nicer area with many 2 and 3 family homes but declined in the early 1970s.
