Petition of Lou L. Heaton for a Release of the City's Interest in a Section of

Old Paerdegat Lane, in the Borough of Brooklyn.
The following petition was received :
To the Commissioners of the Sinking Fund of the City of New York:

Your petitioner, Lou L. Heaton, respectfully shows as follows:

He resides at No. 497 East 29th Street, Borough of Brooklyn, City of New York, and is the owner in fee of the southeast corner of East 29th Street and Paerdegat Lane, Borough of Brooklyn, City of New York

That said property has a frontage of 42.92 feet on East 29th Street and a frontage of 100 feet, 6 inches on Paerdegat Lane. Said property was conveyed to petitioner by William Leck and Emelia Leck, his wife, on the 2nd day of March, 1909, said deed being recorded in Liber 3125 of Conveyances, page 304.

Your petitioner has resided on the said property conveyed to him ever since the date of conveyance and has held continuous possession thereof and is now in possession of said property and his title thereto has never been questioned or disputed. Said property is known as and by Lots Nos. 2639 and 2640, in Block No. 56, on a certain map entitled "Addition No. 5 to Vanderveer Park, belonging to Germania Real Estate and Improvement Company, etc.," surveyed October, 1893, by Charles Crooke, Civil Engineer and Surveyor, and filed in the office of the Register of the County of Kings on December 4th, 1895.

Upon information and a belief said Paerdegat Lane has been continuously used as a public highway and open for traffic for upwards of two hundred years and was open and actually used as a common highway during all of said period.

Your petitioner purchased his said property believing it to be corner property, having a frontage both upon East 29th Street and Paerdegat Lane, and since your petitioner has owned said property, Paerdegat Lane has been used continuously as a public highway.

Foster Avenue has recently been legally opened and improved and there is now no reason for the use of Paerdegat Lane as a public highway and said Paerdegat Lane has been closed and the sidewalks and curbs on East 29th Street have been constructed across said paerdegat Lane, and your petitioner as the owner of the abutting property is entitled to the land in said Paerdegat Lane.

Pursuant to Section 205 of the Charter of the City of New York, your petitioner requests that the City of New York convey to him all its right, title and interest in and to said Paerdegat Lane, in front of and adjoining premises owned and occupied by petitioner, as shown upon the survey hereto annexed and made a part of this application.

Petitioner's property is known as Lot No. 72, Block No. 5231.
Respectfully submitted,

LOU L. HEATON, Petitioner.
Dated, August 11, 1915.
City and State of New York, County of Kings, ss.:

Lou L. Heaton, being duly sworn, says: That he is the petitioner herein; that he has read the foregoing petition and knows the contents thereof; that the same is true of his own knowledge, except as to the matters therein stated to be alleged on information and belief, and as to those matters he believes it to be true.

Sworn to before me this 11th day of August, 1915, NELSON L. NORTH, JR., Commissioner of Deeds of the City of New York, residing in Kings County. Certificate filed in offices of Kings County Clerk No. 16, Kings County Register No. 6011, New York County Clerk No. 22, New York County Register No. 16012, Queens County Clerk No. 320. My commission expires April 14, 1916.
