The Dolnansky's Of Catherine Street And KV

The Dolnansky's were mentioned previously
Dorita and Bernard Dolansky whose parents owned a store near the Pizza place on Catherine St - they sold children's clothes.

I found some primary documents of theirs in the census. Evidently Harry was the Dolnansky who started the business since he was born in 1885 and had a store at 60 Catherine Street that pre-dated Knickerbocker Village's construction. It says on his WWI draft registration card that he lived at 3345 Catherine Street. That's got to be a mistake I assume. In 1942, when even seniors had to register for the draft, the 52 year old Harry was living at 40 Monroe Street. The store was still at 60 Catherine.
