W. 65th Street and Detroit Avenue

The Gordon Square area was an apple orchard and garden of prominent wholesale grocer and iron ore dealer William J Gordon in the late 1800's. What is now W. 65th Street ran through these grounds, and was referred to as Gordon Street. This street would later lend its name to the commercial district.
