Charles Street

CHARLES STREET runs north from Ferry Avenue to Budd Street. There are a few houses on the west side of Charles Street, the east side is taken up by the Butler Cemetery, and when that property ends, the Evergreen Cemetery. The old Brass Cafe bar was for many years located at 1067 Ferry Avenue, the northwest corner of Charles Street and Ferry Avenue. This building has been a private residence in more recent times. The Butler Cemetery, founded, owned, and operated by black businessman Dempsey Butler, is on the northeast corner. 

Do you have an Charles Street memory or picture? Let me know by e-mail so it can be included here.

Melvin and Helen Sarson bought 1885 Charles Street from Mr. Juergens in 1947. They also bought the empty lots at 1865 Charles Street and made our yard huge. It was like having our own park.
