I'll Be Seeing You

video
I was in the KV area yesterday and took some pics. Some highlights are Paul Levine's apt (with signs of the first KV air conditioner), the current state of Joe Bruno's former parking lot and the interesting mosaics I never noticed in front of 43 Market Street. I wanted to match up photos to the lyrics of Jimmy Durante's (of Catherine Street) great version of I'll Be Seeing You. I don't have the patience to do it now, maybe another time. Anyway, thought I'd put it up as is. Interesting that the composer of "I'll Be Seeing You" was Sammy Fain, born Sammuel Feinberg in 1902 in New York City. There are a couple of Samuel Feinberg's whose NY addresses I've found in the 1910 census. I don't have enough info (like his parents' names) to tell which Feinberg is Fain. One of them lived at 37 Rutgers Street, which is right near KV.
I'll be seeing you
In all the old familiar places
That this heart of mine embraces
All day through.
In that small cafe;
The park across the way;
The children's carousel;
The chestnut trees;
The wishin' well.
I'll be seeing you
In every lovely summer's day;
In every thing that's light and gay.
I'll always think of you that way.
I'll find you
In the morning sun
And when the night is new.
I'll be looking at the moon,
But I'll be seeing you.
I'll be seeing you
In every lovely summer's day;
In every thing that's light and gay.
I'll always think of you that way.
I'll find you
In the morning sun
And when the night is new.
I'll be looking at the moon,
But I'll be seeing you.
