This was the lane leading from the north end of the Wallabout Bridge Road to the junction of KyKout. [handwritten on page, text continues] Armbruster's writing about Water Street. Before 1826, there was no public road other than Cripplebush Lane that connected Williamsburgh to Brooklyn. In order to drive from Flushing Avenue to South Seventh Street ferry, a person had to use the lane and remember to open and close the seventeen gates obstructing it. Armbruster writes that Dutch farmers could be antagonistic to travelers that did not close the gates. Scrapbook page from "Bushwick and her neighbors, Vol.2"
