URGES SAFE OF REALT Former Register [ Whatever Appea to Insure Thei T? tki. R**v Est at* Editor or Th* Nr.r Tor* Hrrald: A short time ago, whtn looking up data for a little story about the Harlem Commons, I wrote'to th* Department of Education at Albany for some Information. I was told that the information could not be had, as the records were destroyed In the Assembly lire in 1*11. I had occasion too to write to Washington for some Harlem Information, which I received, and shortly after, I read In the newspapers of the destruction by Are of some of the old census records, which cannot he restored, as thers were no duplicates made. Every big company?life Insurance, railroad, title insurance, &c.?nowaday* not only has duplicates of Its records made, but keeps these duplicates In some place of safety, generally tat some fireproof building In another city from the home office, and sometimes In a special building built on an Isolated plot of ground In a entail village. It is said that one of the title companies of this city has duplicate records in Baltimore and a third set In Connecticut No effort whatever appears,to be taken with pub-' He records to prevent them from destruction by fire. What Other Cities Have Done. When I was Register of New York county I corresponded Tdlth the Registers of Chicago, San Francisco and Jacksonville and asked them what effect, the destruction of their publlo real estate records had had on business In their cities. The Chicago Register wrote me as follows: "The great expense to the real estate owners after the fire was of course In restoring the evidence that they had. The .abstract companies managed to save enough of their plants so that by combining all the plants In existence before the fire they had, or olalmed to have had, a complete set of books and record* Their prices Immediately raised and millions of dollars have been expended since then by real estate own where the largest number of people are found. A distance of 100 feet often determines the value of the location. And to force a business section Into favor is rarely successful. This was apparent thirty years ago In the attempt to make Railroad avenue opposite the station a business centre. The person who conceived the Idea sold out at the first opportunity. and those who were left were saved by the telephone. The proximity of a railroad station has never been desirable for business. Next came an attempt to make the new Town Hall In 1909 a business centre, followed by the post office In 191B. But these attempts have not succeeded In rlvlnr an activity to what ! often termed downtown real estate. The disposition is to locate north of the oentre of the avenue. That 90 per cent, of the population lives north sf| the Boston Feet road must have had It* fofluenpe. Down town real estate I* not undesirable for any reaeen It almpTy ha? not yet come Into Ita own. Greenwich avenue Is not lonff enough to meet the demands of business In the next decade. It will find Its way Into aide streets. As a place of residence Greenwich Is fenerally regarded as the most desirable suburb of New Tork, and Its development has scarcely begun. Many hundred acres within a mile of the town hall will come into the market for residential altes. And this may be one of the facta responsible for the present boom. Building In Greenwich has made progrtae In the last six years In suite of depression, end will undoubtedly oon- j tlnue In the future with even more re-' pidltjr. A era tvr auouauuj ui utio. An act of tha Legislature wai passed, as you have noted, authorising the reatoratlon of evidence of title by proceedings of court, and this was availed of to a great extent, but of course at a . great expense." The San Francisco Recorder said In a letter to me: "The official records were, In effect, all destroyed. Some txooks were saved, but these, since they constituted only a broken chain of evidence, were of little value. An emergency measure (the McEnerney act) for the establishment of titles was enacted by the State Legislature. About thirty-live thousand suits have been ATM under this act and some thousands are still to be filed. It Is estimated that proceedings under this act alone will cost the people from 12.600,000 to $8,000,000. "As you will readily understand, there REALTY BOOM IS ON IN GREENWICH, CONN. Observers Ponder Over Marked Development on Town's Main Business Artery. The recent upward trend In the value of real estate on Greenwich avenue. In Greenwich. Conn., the town's main business thoroughfare, has caused much discussion as to Its cause. There have been a number of sales of large buildings recently and there Is a boom apparent, but Its cause Is not so clear. During the past five years. It Is 6ald, there has bean little Increase in the population of the town. And yet statistics at the town hall show the growth has been healthy. This condition Is refleoted in the number of houses built, and yet It la not an absolutely fair criterion, as most of the new houses are larae. ac eommodatlng small families, while people in more moderate circumstances are living In more crowded quarters than formerly. However, the following table tells Its own story: Number Houses Number Tear. On Grand List., Built. 1014 3.830 Jfttft 3,ess 12S lOlfi 4.087 82 1917 4,121 84 1018 4.170 49 1019 4.183 13 1021 4.840 197 ivtsl built In six years 910 These houses are scattered over such a large territory that construction In Sound Beach and East Port Chester, two of the (%iburbs of the town, can hardly Influence property values In a place so remote %a Greenwich avenue, but the concision can scarcely be maintained when the Improvement In local stores, both in number and stock. Is considered. The Increase In trsffle on the avenue wtthln six years Is apparent and signifies an increase In business. The Ktissel A. Cowles enterprise, which includes the old Pickwick Inn Building, Pickwick Candy Shop, New England Motor Sales Company Building and the magnificent hotel building known as the Pickwick Arms, corner of the Boston Post road and Greenwich avenue, have doubtless had their effect If In no other way than In the Improved appearance of the upper end of the street. No one Individual has ever expended such a large amount of money In the Improvement of property In the business section as Mr. Cowles. Business must be better, according to tti? fintnlnn nf f"l f**n Ahasm'srs GUARING. Y RECORDS declares No Effort rs to Be Taken ir Preservation la no way to arrlva at an even approximate estimate of the direct coat to the people of the destruction of the official records. The total cannot be less than several million dollars. That the loss of these records also resulted In great Inconvenience. loss of time, anxiety and some litigation, must be readily apparent to you. All told, the loss of our official records was In Itself no small disaster." The Jacksonville answer was similar. Index Made Here Ten Years Ago. When we recall the millions of deeds, mortgagee, da, of this city, housed In the heart of each borough and representing more than 110,000.000,000 worth of property, which are liable to be destroyed at any time, we ought to make some provision for the safekeeping of these records. About ten years ago the Legislature ordered an Index of the real estate In Bcruiuems oj new ror? county to oe made. My predecessor started making this Index and It was finished during my term of office. Incidental to this Index work duplicate abstracts of every Instrument were made. These abstracts contain all the principal points of the original Instruments. I established the practice of abstracting the current work In the same way so that duplicate abstracts are now always up to date. My correspondence with the cities where fires had occurred and public records destroyed. Impressed on me the urgent need of preventing such a catastrophe happening In this county. I made arrangements with the Water De- i partment to make alterations in an abandoned stone building In the Catsklll Watershed, a building used by the engineers In making their surveys but now no longer needed. In order to have no delay as to an appropriation for the work, the needed < funds (only about $3,000) were saved 1 out of the appropriation for the work of i the Register's office. Precautionary Work at Standstill. j The abstracts were boxed, estimates ( obtained for the steel cases to contain them and even a tentative arrangement , made to haul the abstracts from the Hajl of Records to the Catskllls. The alterations to the building and all of the other arrangements would not have cost over the $3,000 saved. Unfortunately for the project my term expired before It could be consummated. The boxed abstracts remained in the Register's office. ; After the Are last January, which destroyed the old census records, I called attention to the fact that no provision was being: made to preserve the duplicate abstracts of this county. Re-', cently: X understand, the Register of this county?after three and a half years of delay?has sent these duplicates to the Ashokan Watershed for storage. John J. Hopper. THIBK CORDITIOHS . FAVOR BUILDING S. "W. Straus & Co. Attest Faith jn Construction by Confirming: to Make New Loans. That fundamental conditions are favorable to building operations. Is indicated by the attitude of S. W. Straus A Co., who report that they continue to provide capital for building purposes when the borrowers comply with the requirements and safeguards set up by the lending institution. With the underwriting of a first mort- | gage 6 per cent, bond Issue of $450,000 . on a new office building In Chicago S. j W. Straus A Co. have rounded out ap- ; proximately $10,000,000 in new building loans recently made in various parts of the country, the larger share of which ) have been on residential structures. The new loan in Chicago Is made on the Emerman store and office building, which wl!! be erected at once. In commenting on the building situation S. W. Straus A Co. say: . "We have attested our faith in the building situation In this country by the continuous loans we are providing on new structures where the borrower Is able to comply with such requirements as we believe necessary 10 safeguard completely the Interests of the bondholder and make ample and adequate provision for the payment of principal of the debt and the interest thereon. "There Is no fundamental reason why building operations in a large way should not go forward While construction work has been conducted this year on a scale of considerable magnitude, taking Into consideration the operations throughout the country, the housing shortage Is still alarming. Our American cities have continued to grov? and develop no matter what general conditions havs been, either domestic or worldwide, and, with the upbuilding of these cities and communities there la an ever present demand for new building. "It Is the policy of this house to do what Is possible, consistent with sound business practice. In assisting In the upbuilding of the nation through providing funds for buildings. We are happy to say that we havs found the present season productive of many rplendld opportunities for underwriting building loan^ which comply with our requirements. In our opinion the general situation. so far as building work goes. Is improving and we anticipate considerable activity between the preeent time and the cloae of the building season."

Home ownership In the city for such as these has been well nigh an Impossibility until recently, when a few groups of realty operators have managed to convert old houses into comfortable apartment suites and have sold them on easy terms to men and women with from $1,000 to $2,000 to Invest. Under this cooperative plan the buyer pays a nominal rent of from $50 to $60 and Is thus able to live In Manhattan and reach their place of business without enervating and exhausting rides twice a day on the city's fearfully overcrowded transit lines.

Brooklyn Heights is soon to have a cooperatively owned apartment house, said to bs the first structure of its kind, old ontlrely from plans, in the borough of Brooklyn Approximately 60 per cent, of the space In the building has already been sold and the venture has proved to satisfactory that Its sponsors, CaryHarmon Co. Inc.. of 144 Montague street, have another similar enterprise under consideration The building which is In process of coiiitniotlon at 192-136 Columbia Heights Is to be a six story, seml-flreproof elevator apartment house with modern equipment for about twenty families. According to specifications, the apartments will vary in sire from three to sight rooms, the largest being in the rear and commanding a desirable view ?f the harbor and the Impressive skyline of lower Manhattan. Each of the largest apartments will be equipped with three baths. There also will be an open fireplace In each living room. The wnaller apartments will have single baths. The building is on a site opposite the Standlsh Arms Hotel. It has a frontage of 160 feet on Columbia Heights and a le-pth of 00 feet west. For more than fifty years It has been a vacant lot. cnown to old residents of the Heights ectlon as the location of the old Peak mansion. The new structure It of Coonlal design, of red brick with white lmestone trimmings. Fred J. French ""ompany are the archltecta and builders. The building will be ready for occupancy October 1. Mr French Is enthusiastic over the >oe.?lbimies of the Heights section He tails particular attention to the disparity >etween me rente wtb *no mom ncnanded In other section* of equal deilrablllty end accessibility. This alone, le argues. la the best guarantee of the >#rmanency of the land values In the lelghborhood. When the advantages of his section, with Its nearness to the leart of Manhattan, become generally mown, enya Mr. French, there will not >e room enough for apartment houses o accommodate the demand. The new structure was sold to prosiectlve tenants on particularly satlsfacory terms. After the Initial payment he expenses of maintaining the house rill be divided among the tenant wners on a pro rata basis. This, it la stlmated. will result In a rental scale f perhaps 30 per cent less than that revalllng throughout the neighborhood.
