Re: Brooklyn Street name #usa
Steve Morse has a list of street name changes in Brooklyn at https://stevemorse.org/census/changes/BrooklynChanges.htm, but Boyd Street isn't on the list. So the question now is whether Adrien's ancestor was going to Boyd Street in one of the other NYC boroughs, or to an entirely different street in Brooklyn. You could see if there is a #17 on Boyd Street in the Bronx or in Staten Island.
