More info on Roosevelt and Cherry Street…

We recently posted a historical picture of the corner of Roosevelt and Cherry Street, the heart of New York´s oldest Spanish quarter. Sergio Rey has sent us additional information about this priceless image: “Picture of Roosevelt and Cherry St., showing La Carnicería [La Ideal], Dr . Keitleman’s Dental Office above La Carnicería, Ernesto´s tailor shop whose son Ernesto JR designed and made all of JOSE GRECO”s costumes, and Centro Vasco. Much stoop ball, stickball, and kick the can corner was played at this locale. The full window seen on the right most building, is the apartment where I was born.”
