Telling the story of one of the Most Important Roads In Maspeth & Middle Village: Our Neighborhood, The Way it Was

RIDGEWOOD TIMES PIC

Eliot Avenue isn’t as old as some of Queens’ most historic roadways, but for a time in the 20th century, it was one of the borough’s most important thoroughfares.

The oldest segment of the two-mile roadway stretches about a half-mile from Metropolitan Avenue to Mount Olivet Crescent. The remainder of the roadway, from Mount Olivet Crescent to Queens Boulevard, wouldn’t open until 1938, just a few months before the opening of the 1939-40 World’s Fair in what’s now known as Flushing Meadows-Corona Park.

When Herbie Morscher’s daughter and the Archbishop Molloy High School softball team were invited to compete in a tournament in Italy, Morscher traveled to Europe with her — but couldn’t leave Ridgewood without one of his pork store’s signature products.

The steak burgers, a favorite at Morscher’s Pork Store on Catalpa Avenue, were a special request from his daughter. She begged him to bring burgers to cook at the tournament, so Morscher boarded the flight to Italy with a cooler bag as his carry-on, filled with 80 frozen patties. Continue Reading ›
