498 Seventh Avenue

Me too. I worked there during the fifties after school and during the summer. Kirt Shadoff was my uncle and Henry's brother-in-law. Tell me more.

My Uncle also...

I worked for him and also lived with him at 80 Park Avenue and 50 Sutton Place and married one of his models.

Uncle Henry

My uncle Henry Rosenfeld had a dress manufacturing company at 498 Seventh Avenue, between 36th and 37th streets (just a block away from this photo). I worked summers there in the mid 1950s while in high school.

Nothing to Fear

Frank E. Roosevelt says things are gonna get better.

-- Addie Pray, "Paper Moon"

The guy in the middle

reminds me of Al Pacino. He's all attitude.
