Myrtle and Jay Streets in Brooklyn. The building in the background is 370 Jay Street, the NYCTA headquarters.

370 Jay St extends from Willoughby St on the south to Johnson St on the north. Johnson St was 1 block south of Myrtle.

Actually, I remember there was a hardware store at the corner of Myrtle and Jay, but never noticed the barber shop and burger/franks place.

South sidewalk at Myrtle and Jay during deconstruction of the el. Used to get off the replacement B54 bus across the street before everything else around got torn down in the 90's.

Those streets still exist at Jay, although Myrtle is a pedestrian walkway.

The building isnít 370 Jay, itís 360 Adams, the Kings County Supreme Court.

A lot gave it away and turned that 8 into a 1. The permanently closed terminal at a T intersection and the 1960s era No Parking Anytime sign. Only one location was left that had both, post 1969 on the Myrtle Ave el at Myrtle and Jay
