This is the story of my grandfather. Upon his arrival in New York at age 19, he found a community of other German immigrants and was helped and mentored. He worked very hard and became an apprentice in wood working. He took classes, formed an interior decorating business on Long Island's "Gold Coast" and always wore a tie and business suit. He lived the American Dream and was a very proud American.
