Loew's Canal: Sept. 24, 1935

Philip Chaleff would be living a 33 Canal Street in 1937 when he was one of the East Side Boys involved in the murder of the police officer at 144 Second Avenue. 33 Canal is where Montgomery Stationers is located. Supposedly the boys would often get together at the theater to discuss their plans. This picture was taken on Sept 25, 1935. Source nypl. On the 24th Joe Louis knocked out Max Baer in four rounds. Chaleff received a last minute reprieve from his date with the electric chair in 1939. He would die in prison in 1954.
