When I lived there it was Gower Street that continued from the bend in Lester St. The family that lived across from us was named Dorshuk or it sounded like that but am not sure of spelling and they were Russian. Their daughter was a teacher.
All surrounded by fields our house was really set apart except for another two story one just before us. There was a field all the way to Garden St off Manor Rd. We cut across a brook an up slope thru trees to get to it and go to the Corners and it was our short cut to school too.
We lived in it from about 1930ish to close to 1935 when we moved to Four Corners itself.
