Ditmas Park

Edelstein & Sons signage in the Ditmas Park neighborhood

If you drive around the neighborhoods of Brooklyn today you can still see some Edelstein & Sons Roofing signs in various places. One is on the side of an apartment building at Westminster Road and Foster Avenue in Ditmas Park. You can tell that one is older because the phone number on the sign is CL1-7090—CL for Cloverdale, which was the name of the telephone exchange in our section of Brooklyn.

An Internet site about the history of the neighborhood, DitmasParkCorner.com, has photos of several other Edelstein & Sons signs, one on a building at Ocean Avenue and Cortelyou Road and another at Avenue N and East 10th Street.
