Hey Sammy.I was born in 1944.The station name was E177/Tremont Ave.West of Boston Rd.,I never saw an E177 St.,only Tremont.But as a side bar,I recently posted about a sign that I lifted off the abandoned NY central line stop on Tremont and Park aves.Hanging out the window of the station ,a small steel sigh read "177St."Another item about Starlight,after the park ran it's was known as the Coliseum. My mother told me of seeing midget auto races,motorcycles riding in wood globes.One last tidbit,Remember the movie "Marty". Well the ballroom dancing part was shot in the "Starlight Ballroom". The club was up-stairs,next door to the RKO Chester. The RKO faced Boston Road.The street behind it was West Farms Road.WFR also ended close to #168
Stay safe
