I think that by the tine we moved to Queens in 1965 it was up to $64 for a one bedroom apt at 1161 Shakespeare Ave. across from PS 114. It had elevators in each of the three sections but you had to walk up four flights from the street to get to them. Our rent doubled when we moved to Queens. My mother lived in that apt until she passed in 2013. I still have the original lease somewhere.
