I began to paint on the Lower East Side-worked at Galishoff’s Restaurant on Rivington 



Perfect Travel on corner on the left was picked as the center of attention because of all its signs. It was begun by Mr. Newstate in 1972 and services large numbers of people within the area. Rabinowitz book store was begun in 1920 by Solomon Rabinowitz. I met people who went in and out whose grandparents had been shopping there when they were Yeshiva students. The store had opened with help from Reuben Mass, who in the 1980’s, was an elder statesman in Israeli publishing. The area has changed from mostly Jewish and Italian to being largely Indian and Chinese.
