Re: Whitier Inn-NYC 1930s. More info on Sarah and grandson Tom #general
You can see a 1910 photo of The Whitier Inn at this link. The poster claims that Isaac Bashevis Singer spent time at The Whitier Inn.
This site has a bit of history about Sea Gate.
A quote from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sea_Gate,_Brooklyn
"Sea Gate is a private gated community at the far western end of Coney Island at the southwestern tip of the New York City borough of Brooklyn. Located on the portion of the Coney Island peninsula west of West 37th Street"
