Does anyone remember where the Southlawn tavern was located? The Flottorp MFG. Co. was located just west of where the NY Central RR tracks cross 32nd Street, on the south side of 32nd Street. It disappeared about the same time the old airport did. By the mid 1960s lawyers had essentially sued small aircraft companies like Piper and Beech out of business, and perhaps this eliminated the need for wood propellers.
