East End Young Men May Purchase
the Gordon Homestead.
There is a move on foot among the
young men of the east part of the
city, to purchase the Dr. Cordon
homestead, which is located on the
tract of land north of Fifth avenue
at Fortieth street, recently neq wired
by C. K. Sharpe, of this city, presiim
ably for manufacturing purposes
and remove it to the lot fn the north
cast corner of Fifth avenue and For
ty-second street to be fitted up and
used for club purposes.
Such a plan, of course, involves the
forming of a club, and several of tin
young men of that section of the city
are now bending their energies to
ward such organization, the enter
prise is a commendable one, particu
larly in view of the fact that the cast
end or the city is rapidly growing
and at the present time is peculiarly
lacking in facilities for the promo
tion of social affairs.
