* As early as 1850, the street names 1st, 2nd and 3rd Avenue were used elsewhere in Astoria.
1873 map and
1890 map for their location.
** Front Street appears in the 1864 Astoria directory as crossing Fulton and meeting the ferry.
I can't find it any of my maps, but by process of elimination, I believe it was 1st Street, as shown here.
Please contact me if you know better.
