Bell on Bell

April 24th, 2015

PS 205, the Alexander Graham Bell School, is located on Bell Boulevard. The school is named, of course, for the inventor of the telephone* (hence the adjacent Telephone Playground). Bell Boulevard, on the other hand, takes its name from Abraham Bell and his family, whose farm it bisected back when it was still just a 19th-century country lane.

* Some would take issue with that claim.
