1574 East 51st Street
Tax Photo Circa 1940
This is where Jack and Mettie Kazalski and their family lived in Brooklyn around 1930, a home that they owned and valued at $6000.
Jack was still working as a foreman for the American Can Company, while 20-year-old John (also called Jack) was a clerk for the electric company. Bertha was 18, Gladys 16, Dorothy 14, and Florence 11.
Between 1939 and 1941, New York City photographed every building in the five boroughs for tax purposes.
This photo of the house at 1574 East 51st Street is from that collection.
