It was the Homestead Building
, and not the Kew Bolmer
, that was the first apartment building to go up in Kew Gardens
. Just as they did in the 20th century's earliest years, apartments occupy the floors above the Homestead Building's
ground level retail shops.
If you have pictures of yourself showing any Kew Gardens locale in the background, email me high resolution jpegs and I will post them here as space permits.
