Pauline Leblond Way

Old News from the neighborhood:

"Pauline Leblond Way - Introduced by Council Member Reyna and Council Member Gallagher
Pauline Leblond served as President of the Stockholm Street Block Association and led the fight to gain historic landmark status from the City for Stockholm Street, between Onderdonk and Woodward Avenues in Ridgewood. She was instrumental in obtaining funding from the City to address problems with the Stockholm Street roadbed, which was deteriorating due to pipes installed during the “horse and buggy” days. Her efforts were rewarded when Stockholm Street was officially named a historic district by the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission on November 28, 2000."
