Clay Avenue, The Bronx

The Clay Avenue Historic District encompasses both blockfronts on Clay Avenue between East 165th and 166th Streets in the south central Bronx. The block sits on land that had previously been a horseracing track called Fleetwood Park, and its residential buildings were the earliest to be constructed on the property. In recent decades, economic disinvestment has plagued the block, but local residents are working, under the name Clay Avenue Historic District, to improve public safety, encourage building restoration, and cultivate support for neighborhood beautification.
