     Cincinnati Avenue was south of Atlantic Avenue; in between South Nassau Avenue and South Osborne Avenues. Mansfield through Adams avenues are all the same names. The reason for this, is that most of this area, Mansfield to Vendome and Ocean to Bay, was called Margate Park. This park was undeveloped and had no street names except on paper. Cedar Grove to Adams was developed.
