Tax Photo Circa 1940
Between 1939 and 1941, New York City photographed every building in the five boroughs for tax purposes.
This photo of the building at 2702 Stillwell Avenue is
from that collection.
Adolph operated a big laundry business in New York, owned by brothers Joe and Mike Spadaro, called Rex Laundry.
It was here at 2702 Stillwell Avenue in Brooklyn. Adolph once took my father there to show him how it worked.
In the 1939 newspaper article below, Mike Spadaro was murdered outside the laundry.
