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.
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.
