The Journey To Knickerbocker: Harry Liebowitz, 122 Allen Street

This must be Harry in the 1920 census since we know that Harry had a sister named Yetta and lived near the Allen Street baths. He was 7 years old and the eldest child. His father was Hieman (probably Hyman), his mother Sadie, his sisters were Yettie and Bessie and he had a brother Abie. Hyman arrived in 1911 and Sadie in 1912. The google picture of 122 Allen may not be accurate and even if it was it may be wrong since the eastern side of Allen was altered in the 30's when the "el" was dismantled and the street widened. Note, the 70 stands for the apt number.
