Mermaid Avenue runs east to west. The 23rd Street Synagogue (Shari Zedek) was operational through the early 1980's. The synagogue and ajoining yeshiva building was used as a day care center. The current building--a housing police headquarters--was built in the early 90's.


Thanks for the correction, Jeff, as well as for the update about Shari Zedek. My father was wondering what happened there.

Joy Ray

Jeff, I am so glad to have found you. I have so many fond memories of your dad, and some of the records I used to have in the "olden days". How can I get get the words to those glorius stories and songs he wrote; such as "The Family Goes to Coney Island", "I'm Lefkowitz, the Cop", the one hysterical scenario of the old folks on vacation and "marockoso and "kabokosop" and wait for the meal bell to ring and the waiter reading the menu...hysterical... I would love so much to recapture these..I am 70 now and remember him like it was yesterday. Thank you for being his son. Hugs to ya Jeff. Joy Ray

Jeff Weintraub

Joy, sorry, but I don't think that's my father. He was not a songwriter or musician at all. But, hey, it's nice to know that a David Weintraub was.
Just concidentally, he died on Feb. 15, only a few days before you submitted this. See my posting on Feb. 25.
