Around The Corner From George Cukor

Lived Nat Schumer, Mark and Stuie's dad, i.e. the rational for Cukor's who's who status. In 1920 Nat lived with his younger brother Joe and his dad Morris at 346 E. 3rd Street. Nat's mom had passed away I believe in giving birth to Joe. Mark is named after his grandfather. The 346 address was between Avenue D and Goerck Street. Goerck is no longer there as the Lillian Wald projects, built in the early 1950's, absorbed it. The 1933 image above shows 397 E 3rd Street. Rather than PS 15, Nat probably went to the closer PS 188 on Houston and Lewis.
