AND BUILDERS' GUIDE. VouII;-}^^" ' ■•- NEW YOEK, SATUEDAY, MAECH 13, 18K9. [No. 52. Peremptory Sale at Auction! JAMES M. MILLER WILL SELL, ON • At 12 o'clock, at Exchange Salesroom, 111 Broadway, 48 PARCELS OF LAND, CONTAINING- ABOUT ]Estate of LeAvis Gr. Mlorris. The demand for semi-rural residences must be considered not only a promi¬ nent characteristic of the present activity in real estate, but is also evidence that the increasing population ofthe City of New York will make its suburbs indispensable auxiliaries. It is not doubted that part of Westchester County embraced by the contemplated sale will become a part of the great and grow¬ ing City of Jfew York. The great feature of Westchester County at present in this connection, viewed from a city standpoint, is the Central Avenue, Which is one of the broadest and finest avenues in the world for the general characteristics of dimensions, locahty, and the beauty of surrounding and ad¬ joining scenery. It commences on the northerly side of jBarlem River, directly opposite the termination ofthe Seventh-ave. Grand Boulevard, and One Hun¬ dred and Fifty-fifth St., and is connected with this city by the Central Bridge, which spans the river at that point. The Commissioners of Central Park, when this track shall be placed under their control, will lay out several streets and avenues, and connect theni by bridges with the Boulevards on New York side. The probable consohdation of this part of Westchester County with NewYork City; the popularity of Central-ave. as a drive; the proximity of the Harlem and Third-ave. cars, and the proposed Underground Railroad, make it at once desirable for building purposes or for investment. The location of this prop¬ erty is superb, and a fine view of Central-ave. is presented fi-oni all parts. For Maps and further particulars, apply to the Auctioneer, No. 28 PINB STREET.
