Walter Rosett

I am trying to locate information >from the 1892 NY State Census. My
grandfather, Joshua ROSETT arrived in 1891 and supposedly was staying with
family. His brother Adolph Rosett (Arnold Rosette) at that time was married
with a child and likely living in NYC. In 1896 Joshua lived at 402 Cherry
St which seems to be in the far lower east side. Just before this he worked
on 10th Ave several blocks >from Broadway. Stories suggest that he stayed
with "family" but there were many "Rosett" families in NYC. It seems likely
that he was in a Jewish-Russian or Jewish-Polish neighborhood. I hope that
someone could give me an idea what area this would have been at that time
since there were a great many Enumeration Districts and Wards to search.
