Cornerspotted: Lefferts Boulevard in Kew Gardens

This week's Cornerspotter is indeed Lefferts Boulevard in Kew Gardens, as guessed by commenter DTNYC. The view up the boulevard looks northward towards Cuthbert Road. As per the Times,"The area, which had been a recreation area for the residents of Richmond Hill, was first developed at the turn of the century by Albon Man, a lawyer who turned his attention to real estate development, and his son Alrick." Despite the Man's favor for neo-classical tudors, many of which still stand, the neighborhood lacks landmark protection. StreetEasy stats say median rents in the neighborhood these days rest around $1,650, with median sales prices around $212,500 or $248 per square foot.
