Who's Almost Who In Knickerbocker Village History: Eydie Gorme

I discovered a way to rationalize Eydie's inclusion. In 1930 her family was living less than a half mile away from Rubin Beer's family (Bruce and Nancy Bueller's grandfather). Who knows the Gormezanos and Beers may have known each other? Both Nessim, Eydie's father, and Rubin were tailors. (so was probably half of the Bronx :) )
Rubin was among the group that moved into Knickerbocker when it was built. My research discovered an un-publicized fact about Eydie, but I won't squeal.
