SCRANTON AND LEHIGH COAL COMPANY
233 Nevins Street/236 Butler Street
Early 20th century
This building survives as a relic of the once prolific commodity of coal shipment on the Gowanus Canal. According to a transcription from Brooklyn Genealogy, “Lehigh and Scranton coals have no rivals as powerful heat producers and sustain combustion in a manner that insures the greatest economy as household and manufacturing fuels.” See also the Burns Brothers Coal Pockets on 2nd Avenue.
