A Fascinating Tour of BP - The Way it Was in 1940

A father takes his son on a very interesting tour of Borough Park Brooklyn, the town where he grew up as a child in the late 1930's and the 1940's. He revisits congregation Anshei Sfard on 14 Ave, a landmark in Boro Park, where he had his Bar Mitvah in the early 1950's. His grandfather actually was a founder of that shul and donated one hundred dollars way back in 1915. They then go to the site of his old elementary school, Yeshiva Eitz Chaim of Boro Park, which today is the site of the very popular Eichlers Judaica store on 13 Ave & 50 St.
