Yiddish or Hebrew?
good to know that the permanent “going out of business” signs were around back then too.
The Hebrew script seems to be a transliteration of the English. Anyone who actually speaks Hebrew or Yiddish have any insight?
Why is the term Jewish ghetto used? Does it mean exactly the same thing as saying an Italian ghetto or any other nationality? Just trying to better understand as I have heard this phrase before but you don’t usually hear it associated with other ethnicities. Thanks!
When I was a kid they recreated the ghetto on Ave C for the movie Ragtime. My grandma and I got to be extras in it. That’s was directed by the famous Milos Foreman, whom I met. I can still find myself in the movie. Must have been 1982 or thereabouts.
In the movie “A Few Good Men”, Kevin Pollak played a character named Weinberg.
Anybody know what street this is?
Almost certainly Delancey Street as the structure on the right looks like part of the cut & cover subway construction that took place on Delancey in 1908
