Hester Street & The Lower East Side of New York City

Like many of our families I have roots on the lower east side and Hester Street. My mothers family came to america in the 1880’s The Schulkin’s and they lived in this area. My father family came The Baumwoll’s  and lived by the 92 street Y in 1910. When I was a boy my father took me to Henry Street and I want to  be  on the stage like Fanny Brice. I have many fond memories of these areas.
