Was 10 Cannon Street across the street from the school? I have ancestors that lived there- any info would be appreciated
I have read that there was (maybe still is) a school on Cannon Street. My father was born at number 79-81 Cannon Street in Jan. of 1902. The upper numbers of Cannon Street were tenanted by Austrian Jews, down to the lower numbers, around the teens and below, which were Irish. I went over to find Cannon Street about 15 years ago, and found a housing project in its place. I did find one street sign designating “Cannon” still standing, in the vicinity of some kind of dump or rock works. I regret I didn’t take a picture. Best of luck.
Just came across your post from 2014. My grandfather lived at 79-81 Cannon Street from July 1903, when arrived from Hungary, until 1906, when my grandmother arrived.
I just found a 1900 Census that my great great grandfather lived at 94 Cannon St. New York. I find your information interesting that the upper numbers were tenanted by Austrian Jews. He came from Austria. I am not familiar with New York and this is the second time I have come across an address that no longer exists. The other was at 292 Stanton St. I believe was also in Manhattan. I am very interested in learning much more but it has been difficult.
i was born at 61 Cannon St. in 1943 and lived there for 10 years. When I was 10, Cannon St. north of the Williamsburg Bridge was demolished to make way for low cost housing projects. South of the bridge was PS110 an elementary school which still exists, I think.
Hi. I just found this discussion while researching several–actually many– of my family member who lived at 53 Cannon Street from about 1902 to after 1920. They were Austrian Jews (actually from the Province of Galicia in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, but currently part of Ukraine). At any given time, at least 3 sets of my family members were living there! I am working with a cousin on a family reunion and would love to find out more info about Cannon Street and am hoping to track down some archival photo if possible.
My grandmother lived at 57 Cannon Street with her family. They came from Lithuania.
My Aunt and Uncle and their kids are listed at 334 Cannon St.in the 1925 census and one son was born there in 1928. Joseph and Ray Shumsky (or schumsky) were from Galicia.
My father’s family lived at 56 Cannon Street in the early 1900′s. My grandfather and grandmother came from Austria, a town called radymishla (phonetic).
