Hey That Street is Named After Hitler.....

Well not exactly but close. Believe it or not unbeknown to many people (until now) there is a street in the very Jewish neighborhood of Manhattan Beach, Brooklyn that is ironically named after an Anti-Semite. It was recently discovered that Austin Corbin, a 19th century Brooklyn Land Developer and one time head of the Long Island Railroad was also an outspoken anti-Semite, and president of the American Society of the Suppression of Jews.There is now a movement to rectify this situation.

The Jewish Press had a great front-page essay last week on this subject by Dr. Rafael Medoff of the Wyman Holocaust Center.
