the tenements of New York
City.
Then we head over to
Straus Square, and Mr. Ader
points out the site of the
Garden Cafeteria. "All day we
sat and talked," he recalls.
"And this is also where we got
the subway for the long trip to
Coney Island."
Walking briskly, we soon
reach East Broadway. "This
was the center of everything
at the turn of the century,"
says Mr. Ader, standing on the
wide street which now has
many Chinese stores; for the
immigrant Jews have long
since moved uptown.
But once they crowded into
the building at No. 192,
which was and still is — the
Seward Park Library where
Mr. Scheinberg and other
Jewish immigrants came to
read books in Russian and
Yiddish. "The demand was so
great that the New York
Public Library ordered them
by the thousands," he says.
He also points out Agudath
Habonim across the street,
one of the few remaining
small shuls on East Broad-
way. And then we walk over
to Henry Street and stop in
front of the building that was
the Rabbi Jacob Joseph
School, the yeshiva which Mr.
Scheinberg attended. Stan-
ding near the school play-
ground, where Mr. Schein-
berg once played football and
soccer during recess, Mr. Ader
says he'll tell us "how the
story turns out."
It turns out to be an im-
migrant success story. When
Mr. Scheinberg was 13, the
family moved to Brooklyn,
says Mr. Ader, but the boy still
came to the Lower East Side
every day to attend the Jacob
Joseph School. Later he at-
tended Columbia University,
and then went to Baylor
Medical School in Texas.
"Talk about culture shock!"
quips Mr. Ader.
Mr. Scheinberg married,
had children, and settled in
Connecticut where he practic-
ed medicine. He's still there,
now 80 years old. And he's
still often drawn to his old
neighborhood.
Several years ago, he
returned to visit the Eldridge
Street Synagogue, explains
ME Ader, who has now shifted
from his Yiddish accent to his
own voice to finish the
narrative.
Mr. Scheinberg also visited
the Tenement Museum and
volunteered to share his
recollections and his family
history with the museum
staff. They, in turn, research-
ed even more details —
names, dates, addresses,
descriptions — which was
then turned into a lively
