I spent the better part of this morning looking for the establishment of Arena Drive in Hamilton. I have concluded that when they cut the new street through from "Old Olden Avenue" to White Horse and ultimately to Yardville, in the summer of 1958, that it was named for Al Arena's nightspot on Arena Drive where Central Avenue intersects. Unfortunately, the above fascinating articles from 1913 show the genesis of many of Trenton's streets but unfortunately rural Hamilton was not included.
