OK, now I think I know the area you're talking about. The only thing that comes to mind is: on Prospect Avenue (old Route 2) there used to be an "ice house" where they stored and sold ice for the old "ice boxes". Perhaps the foundation was for a building associated with that enterprise. BTW, I can remember going inside that icehouse in the middle of August and seeing huge slabs of ice covered in sawdust awaiting cutting and distribution. My father said that he delivered ice as a young man carrying 100-pound blocks up flights of stairs in the area's various apartment buildings.
