Riverhead - Industry Name?

Postby nyandw » Mon Feb 20, 2017 8:20 pm

Folks, this building appears to be LI Potato or LI Produce, but seems some of the track maps do not ID either...

It is located north side of the ROW facing Sweezy Avenue east of Marcy Ave. in Riverhead. Thanks!

I asked my uncle about this. He was the freight agent out there for a while.

He thought it might be part of a west end BTM (Brooklyn Terminal Market) potato dealer,Feinlieb Brothers? If he definitely comes up with something, I will post.

I know this doesn't answer your question, but the building is still occupied today.
