Richard, sorry this took so long, but I just stumbled back on the site a few minutes ago. Terry (Mrs, Steinberg, remarried to a Bill or Bob Smith after Nat died. That didn’t last too long, and then she married Philip Fleischmann (not Fliasnick). who was a very interesting man and he and Terry spent a lot of time with my folks at our house in Mt Vernon.

Just outside the theater was Proctor Pharmacy where you could get the greatest malted milks for 35 cents in the mid to late 1950s. In 1921 during off-season, Babe Ruth appeared in a vaudeville show at Proctors Theater Nov. 3rd – 5th. Mr. F.F. Proctor issued a card with Ruth’s photo on it, which is now very rare and very expensive.

Nate, I assume you know that before going into Real Estate and owning 4 movie theaters, that Nat was a boxer. He decided, rightly so, that investing was better than getting his head beat. I’ve had some contact with Elena, but I was hoping to connect with Fred. When Fred took over Navist Theaters, he had a small office on Broad St. around the corner from the theater. This was next to the barber shop and HiFi Pizza ($.15 a slice). As Sandy mentioned above, we have great memories of the Parkway, and also the many times I explored the 19 acres and 26 room house in Greenwich. Horses, Dogs, Tennis, Pool & Cabana, formal gardens, etc. It had it all. My mom (Edith), Terry and Rhoda (Glass) were the best of friends from Roosevelt high school in the Bronx. I’m working on a 50th reunion and am looking for Mount Vernon artifacts to display. Give your dad my email Bob Mayer

I would be interested in hearing from Robert Steinberg, who along with Freddie, were sons of Nat & Terry. I spent considerable time at the magnificent home in Greenwich as a youngster, and also at the Parkway as I had a lifetime pass from the Steinberg family. Bob Mayer
