The Road To Knickerbocker: Judge Lupiano

I'm always fascinated about how people came to live in KV. In many cases people followed the usual immigrant road away from the lower east side as their economic situation bettered. Knickerbocker reversed the trend because people saw a good housing value as well as an opportunity to be closer to downtown work.
The above map showed how Judge Lupiano started out in the Fourth Ward on Roosevelt Street and then came back when he became a lawyer and then a judge.
