I just finished reading a Brooklyn Eagle article from February
7th 1943 titled Flatbush memories. At the turn of the century Pain's Fireworks and ammunition, factory was located at Coney Island road and Newkirk ave. They later moved their plant to South Greenfield that was part of the village of Parkville and now called Midwood. Also, the article mentions that Peter Oats had a dairy at the Parkville station on the Brighton Rail road at Newkirk ave. I find this amazing.
