I believe that McNamara's "History in Asphalt" explains that a volunteer fire company with the name Nereid was located on that street. Firemen use water. "History in Asphalt" is a marvelous catalog of the origin of Bronx street names. The book is in libraries. I think a new edition is sold by The Bronx Historical Society on Bainbridge Avenue.
