Long time residents of Elmhurst, they are sharing this shot of Newtown H.S. with the 1939 World's Fair visible in the background.

Magnificent Photo! My mom, born in 1920, graduated from Newtown HS in 1937 or 38 (not sure). I have seen many photos of the HS and the Fair, but never the two in the same photo.

According to the Queens
Street Name Changes on the Steve Morse website, Weimar Street is now 54th Avenue

I don't know how to create hyperlinks here, so you can see the information by going to the main site,, scroll down to the fourth section, US Census and Soundex. Click on Changed Street Names,then click on Queens NY, then Our Table 1: Old Name to New Name, then Alphabetical Streets T to Z.

I have a map showing Weimar St connecting 52nd and 53rd Avenues just east of Grand, between Haspel and the LIRR tracks.
