Can you read this address? #usa

Barbara,

He is going to his brother-in-law Jossel GOLDFARB at 301 or 307 Madison Street.

I searched the city directories at Ancestry for GOLDFARB using keywords 301 Madison and 307 Madison, and got no hits. GOLDFARB likely was not at that address long enough to make it into a city directory.

A Jossel GOLDFARB, age 19 from Brest, arrived in NY on May 12, 1890.  This is very probably your Jossel GOLDFARB.  His manifest does not list who people are going to.

There is a Joseph GOLDFARB, also from Brest, living in NY who filled out an "old man's" WW11 draft card, so that could also be your Jossel GOLDFARB.  This man gives his birth year as 1877, and the fellow on the manifest was 1871, but we know how birth years fluctuated!

Good luck in your search,

Sherri Bobish

Thanks to all who responded publicly and privately.  Family search does have much better images, a bonus for me as I didn't realize that.  Now I see it says "broth,-in-law" but I can't read that name, possibly Sholem Fried?  Can anyone make that out?  

Thanks again.

I agree with Madison Str. But it may be 301. Look at how the 7 in the age of the first person on the manifest is written, it has a hooked top and a little cross line where all the 1s have a heavy downstroke. The Familysearch manifests are always much clearer:  https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33S7-L1XM-NFC?i=93&cc=1368704&personaUrl=%2Fark%3A%2F61903%2F1%3A1%3AJFB6-96T

I believe It says 307 Madison Street or Ave.

I am attaching a link to a passenger ship manifest showing my great-uncle, David Sancton, on line 5.  I cannot discern the address to which he is going.  I hope someone can make it out. Thanks so much.
