Puzzle# 5 Wordplay: NYC Word Pyramid

This week’s puzzle is a word pyramid.  This type of puzzle starts with a one word answer to the first clue, and adds a letter to each successive clue.  Every new answer also incorporates the letters of the last answer.  New letters can be added on to the beginning or end of previous answers or the letters can be completely rearranged.  For example.  A, TA, TAC or A, TA, ACT would both be acceptable answers to start a word pyramid.

Two hints for this week’s pyramid.  One, the first answer and last answer are streets that intersect in Brooklyn, and two all clues are regular crossword puzzle type clues.  There are no cryptic clues this week.  Happy puzzling!
