Hi,
I'm looking for some info regarding my ancestors, specifically my Great-great-grandfather Giuseppe Mirabella's parents.
Giuseppe Mirabella/i was born December 1874 in Cassano allo Ionio, Cosenza, Calabria and died in NY Sept. 1956.
He was the son of Anna Pasquali & Fedilo Mirabella/i
He had at least one brother - Battista (1865-1938)
Giuseppe was married to Caterina Nicoletta and had 5 children: Anna, Filomena, Fidele(Fred), Giovanni, & Salvatore - all born in NY

I'd appreciate any info that could be found, but I'd really like to find out more about their lives in Italy.
Thank you so much,
Nick

My grandfather was Battista Mirabella from Cassano allo Ionio. He died in NYC in 1938. He married Maria Conchetta Milano, my Grandmother, and my aunts and uncles were Fred, Anna, Filomina, Frances, Salvatore and Joseph. My father was Joseph who was a NY attorney. They have all passed and me and my cousin Jack are all who remain. We lived in the Bronx and I now live in Manhattan. We must be cousins.

My cousin visited Cassano in the 1950's. His memory is fuzzy but he told me he was greeted royally. He remembers a farmhouse with animals living on the ground level and the family upstairs. He slept on a straw mattress. I'm sure things have changed by now. The family had a small bar/restaurant business.
I have been planning a visit for some time but lack of information always got in the way. Maybe now we can secure a address and maybe communicate with them. My Family first lived in Harlem on 127th Street and moved to the Bronx.
I checked Ellis Island.com and found that they retured to Italy and reentered the USA. My Grandfather Battista took his wife and children with him. My father Guiseppi (Joseph) was 1 at the time. Let's try to find a address. I'll keep you informed. I live on Worth Street and Mulberry near the Five Points. Its where my mothers family settled.

My Mom lived on Roosevelt Street (became part of the Alfred E. Smith project during the late 50s) which was nearby. There was a church on her block, St. Joachim which was the "original" site of the San Rocco Feast/Procession every year. Roosevelt street ended where the Brooklyn Bridge now stands (there was a ferry from there to Brooklyn). I had a difficult time in finding a map that showed it's location; there is some info on a NYC website (Street Necrology) that shows streets that no longer exist today -- I was trying to get coordinates for the 1915 NY State Census. Her tenement building was close to the Bowery, Chinatown, Little Italy and Five Points ----- it was a pretty rough neighborhood --- she lived there until she was about 8 years old.

Hi Joe,

I don't think there is anything to see anymore.....the entire neighborhood was demolished and then incorporated as part of the housing project that was built in the late 1950s.......you can find the street on old city maps (prior to 1950).

[from Wikipedia --- Roosevelt Street, in the New York City borough of Manhattan, was a street which existed from the colonial period to the early 1950s, running from Pearl Street at Park Row southeast to South Street.

It is historically significant for its role in the New York draft riots and being the location of the New York (north) tower of the Brooklyn Bridge.

The draft riots which began on Roosevelt Street were a violent protest against the draft which began in the third year of the Civil War.

The Roosevelt Street Ferry was displaced by the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge and the street itself was eliminated by the construction of the public housing development called the "Alfred E. Smith Houses." It ran parallel to James Street.

The street was named after a Roosevelt who owned property in the area from the time of Dutch settlement of New Amsterdam. It was not named after either president of the United States with that name, Teddy Roosevelt or Franklin Roosevelt.]


St. Joachim's Church disappeared along with the neighborhood. St. Joachim's Church at 26 Roosevelt St. was between Oak St. and Park Row. Although Park Row still exists in a slightly different form, Oak St. does not. Mother Cabrini used to be active with the early Italian immigrants through this church. There is a "San Rocco Society" that still has a procession through the Lower East Side every August.

I found a lot of info online.

My address is 170 Park Row and the Federal Court House near me is 500 Pearl Street. Police Headquarters is on the other side intersected by the Brooklyn Bridge ramps. The Smith Projects are on the other side east of Madison Street.

I will look to see if there are some Roosevelt Street signs still around. I will also look in the Police Plaza Compound. There are five mysterious free standing stone columns in the rear of Police Plaza belonging to some building that was once existing. Part of the land swap was that these columns must always be part of the property. It would be amazing if they were from the church.

I have photo of the tenement my Mom lived in on Roosevelt Street (from~1912 -- 1919) that I purchased from NYC Tax Dept. ---- I will see if I can upload it.

I found some really neat photos online of tenement buildings, etc. from Lower Manhattan and Little Italy (there is also a Little Italy Museum website that has a lot of old pictures) ----- it must have been a difficult life at best. I have been told that my GM (who could not read or write) scrubbed floors to care for my Mom and her older brother after my GF died in 1912.....she remarried in 1913 about 18 months after my Mom's Father died.

It would be interesting to know what, if anything still exists from the old neighborhood.......also, what is the "project" neighborhood like today ---- is it safe for tourists to visit???

I took a walk throught the Smith Projects and found no trace of Roosevelt Street. St Joseph's Church is in the corner of Monroe and Katherine Sreet.
The projects are bounded by Katherine, Madison, Pearl and Cherry Streets.
Both Oliver and Monroe Streets run through. It's interesting that there are many driveways that are big enough to have been Roosevelt.

The project is typical but appears clean and well landscaped. It is multiracial.
The Jacob Riis School is on Katherine. Jacob Riis wrote about life in those days. I think the book is called "How the Other Half Lives", might have some clues.

Tomorrow I'll go north of Katherine.

Thanks Joe.....the block of Roosevelt Street where my Mom lived was bounded by Park Row (N) and Madison St. (S). Pearl Street ran parallel and was one block over; New Bowery crossed Roosevelt on an angle intersecting at Madison. Chatham was also close by.

I am not surprised that all/most of the old landmarks are gone.
