bds. means he was a boarder at that address, so he was paying rent.
rem. to NY means he moved to NY
If you look at the front pages of the directory, there is usually a page that
tells you what the abbreviations are.
Also, some directories have a section where the residents are listed by street
address. Usually in the front, before the alphabetical entries. If your book
has this, you will be able to find out easily who owned the house where he lived,
and if there were other relatives living there.
If you don't have this section in your directory, do a keyword search for the
street address, and see if you can find the others who lived there. It might
help your research.
