FLORA AND HARRY NESS
Brooklyn, New York
Flora and Harry were living in adjacent buildings on
Rutgers Place on the Lower East Side before they wed in January of 1914. Flora's
brother Max, her Uncle Chatzkel, and her cousin Edith Burak had already
immigrated to the United States. Harry's cousins Jake Cohen (nee Skura) and
Harry (Chona Jankiel) Ness were in the United States too. Hopefully, all of them
were able to attend Flora and Harry's marriage ceremony in lower Manhattan.
Harry and Flora lived for a time in a building that stood on Monroe Street on
the Lower East Side. They resided there for a couple of years after they wed.
The building, 105 Monroe Street, stood adjacent to an onramp to the Manhattan
Bridge. In 1917, by the time their second child Pearl was born, they had already
moved to the East New York section of Brooklyn, where they lived in a four-story
apartment building until the mid-sixties.
