My family owned a home for several decades at 80-18 24th Ave. In 1957, the city bought out the house via eminent domain to put up a landing light  for LaGuardia Airport. The 1940s tax photos do not have an accurate photo of this particular house, which was located on block 1044, lot 9, the corner of 81st St and 24th Ave.

It looked like this on the 1980 tax photo. http://nycma.lunaimaging.com/luna/servlet/detail/RECORDSPHOTOUNITQUE~1~1~200554~179036:dof_4_01044_0006?sort=borough%2Cblock%2Clot%2Ceasement&qvq=q:block%3D%221044%22;sort:borough%2Cblock%2Clot%2Ceasement;lc:RECORDSPHOTOUNITQUE~1~1&mi=11&trs=12

If anyone has a photo of this corner prior to 1957, would appreciate it.
