Elizabeth Street

I heard Laurie Fabiano speaking about her book Elizabeth Street at the Tenement Museum on Tuesday night, June 13th. I've been reading it and it's excellent. The story tells of a kidnapping of a family member by the Black Hand in 1909. The kidnapping didn't make the news, but I found a similar one that occured in 1910. The Scimeca family was the one victimized. Fabiano's family lived at 202 Elizabeth Street. Scimeca's lived around the corner at 2 Prince Street.
