115 Mulberry Street Manhattan, NY

Postby tonij16102 » 01 Oct 2010, 19:39

I found this address listed as the residence of my great-grandparents in the 1900 censuses. I googled it today and found that it is now a closed restaurant called Foclare. Is there a way to find a picture of this building as it was in the 1900's? I have no idea where to look. Thanks in advance, Toni

Hi Toni - Here's a link to the thread where I asked a similar question. All my family, coming over, stayed in tenements on Monroe and Mulberry streets.

I would venture to say that a very large percentage of buildings in New York City (especially the Mulberry Street neighborhood) have stores/restaurants/shops on the ground level and unrelated offices or apartments on the upper floors. A reverse address lookup at whitepages.com lists 11 hits for that address, the Focolare Restaurant Inc, The Excalibur Group Inc, and nine probable residences. See http://www.whitepages.com/search/Revers ... city%2C+ny

Take a look here for lots of photos: http://www.google.com/images?hl=en&expI ... 25&bih=655

Another possible source is the New York Public Library's digital photo collection.
