Uncovered: 142 North 1st Street

142 North 1st Street

For the past year or two, the nondescript garage on North 1st between Berry and Bedford has been under renovation. A few months ago, the work revealed something a bit more descript – the ghosts of an old city health clinic. The clinic was constructed in 1938 on the site of what was the village of Williamsburgh’s first public school, and sold at auction in 1988 for $33,000.
