History of Bradlee:
This building was named after Samuel Bradley, of Dorchester, Massachusetts. He changed his name to Bradlee at the same time he became constable of Dorchester because there were too many Bradleys in Boston. Samuel’s four sons and daughter were responsible for planning and executing The Boston Tea Party. This civil disobedience contributed heavily to the start of the Revolutionary War. Less than 1/2 of 1 percent spell the name with two “e”s today.
Because of the family’s historical significance, Benjamin Braunstein’s, architect of this building, named it for the famous Bradlees. The building was fitted with a Georgian period facade, faced with rough colonial brick trimmed in limestone. The exterior style was carried into the interior as well. The Bradlee, numbered 69-09 108th Street is on the east side of 108th Street between 69th Avenue and 69th Road. It has 70 apartments and 220 rooms. Sam Moskowitz, the initial owner and builder, received an award from the Queens Chamber of Commerce for its distinction and beauty.
