This map of the Tyler Street area offers mute testimony to the fact that Trenton had yet to fully expand. The city was faced with few expansion alternatives. The proximity to the Delaware River automatically formed a boundary that precluded expansion. The only option was to move in the other directions on the compass. The eastern section was logical. I have been finding all the information I can on the transition of the city as orchards and corn fields and other rural land became developed. A close inspection of this map will show the few homes that dotted a very rural and open area.
