I think that the point of the 1985 fire notice was that it indicates
that the Eldridge street address was a residence, and so would seem to
indicate that the good doctor indeed did live there, even though way
back in 1902, notwithstanding the fact that it is listed first in the
directory and doesn't have an 'h' preceding.
If we acknowledge that we, genealogists long and short, are detectives,
all information can be important.

For instance:

George Gershwin, Letter to Max Abramson (1918)
Library of Congress catalog
<http://www.loc.gov/catdir/toc/ecip046/2003016160.html>

The same Max?

The author/entertainer Max Abramson was probably born in 1918 [in NY],
so he probably wouldn't be the recipient.
