aye eddiec

it's one and the same as Mary's query.

Theres a present day Brookvale area up in the north of the city, at least according to Google Earth.

Also the 1880 street directory said there was a Brookvale something near Duncairn Gardens. Maybe Stan will know?

Eastender 1880 directory Brookvale Avenue off Duncairn Street, Abercorn Terrace 1987 directory states Brookvale Avenue is at 256, Antrim Road. There's also a Brookvale Drive, Parade and Street in the same area.

Actually Eastender I do remember Brookvale Terrace can't remember where it was but think it was off Connsbrook Ave about halfway down from Hollywood Rd.  I lived in Connsbrook Pk. at the bottom just before Larkfield.

Hiya naumai, I'm not certain how old the Park Avenue Hotel is .. it was a guest house when the Stephens family bought it. There's a link on the Forum telling some of the history of the Park Avenue

I was born in Sydenham, Victoria Road in the 50's.  A lot of my family lived in the same street and my daughter will be going back to see it in a few weeks.
