Day, Joseph P.
Manhattan Beach Estates "Swept by Ocean Breezes"
NY: The Moessner Art Service, n.d.

n.d. (ca. 1916) Folded mailer. An early advertisement / prospectus for the Manhattan Beach Estates with photos and a map. VG, some splits at folds, stabilized with japan paper, and minor soiling and an edge chip or two. In great condition overall. Joseph P Day began laying out the grid and groundwork for the Manhattan Beach Estates in 1911 after the razing of the Manhattan Beach Hotel, one of two hotels in Austin Corbin's Manhattan Beach Resort. By 1916 the Oriental Hotel had followed the Manhattan into oblivion as the golden age of Coney Island came to a close. Day was a real estate auctioneer and developer who, over the course of his career, is credited with selling one third of the Bronx and one third of Queens. His goal with Manhattan Beach Estates was simple - liquidate the lots as quickly as possible. By 1918 Day held a massive final liquidation auction, to dispose of the remaining holdings of the Manhattan Beach Realty company - 400 improved lots and 5 dwellings (likely the 5 offices on the site). The map shows properties already sold along with vacant lots and already built structures, a few of which still exist today. Rare, one holding listed in OCLC - Columbia University.
