Lexington Avenue history:
"Lexington Avenue, called Butler Street until 1888, is a gracious, shady, tree-lined residential street measuring 60-feet wide and featuring sandstone curbing and cast iron decorative luminaires on poles. Here, large maples and horse chestnut trees predominate. Most of the houses date to the decades around the turn of the twentieth century, although a few date to the 1870s. - Elmwood Historic District (EAST), Section 7, Page 14
