Hidden Plainfield: January 23 home ID

There are probably hundreds of similar 'workingmen's cottages' in the Queen City.

In a sense, the commenters on yesterday's 'Hidden Plainfield' home are right: the locations they mention (Leland Avenue, Essex Street/Spooner Avenue) do have homes similar to this one. There are probably hundreds scattered around the Queen City.

But the one pictured above is on DeKalb Avenue, where it intersects with Bradford Street.

House, on a double lot, is just a short block from the old Mack plant.

Just a short block from the Mack plant, this was the heart of one of Plainfield's blue-collar neighborhoods back in the day when manufacturing was a much more important component of the local economy.

Where shall we go next week?
