    Peck Slip, Manhattan (13)
    Bernard Michael was born at 9 Peck Slip, where his father Solomon had a tailoring shop. Peck Slip has a long maritime history, serving as an East River slip used by boats to dock until 1810. In fact, Peck Slip once offered George Washington and his troops protection as they fled from the Battle of Brooklyn. Peck Slip was the site of the ferry to Brooklyn before the Brooklyn Bridge opened in 1883. More recently, it was used as a fish market parking lot until the Fulton Fish Market relocated to the Bronx in 2005. In 2006, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved a design for a park at Peck Slip; construction is due to begin in 2014. 9 Peck Slip was on the east side of the street between Pearl and Water Streets.
    Jewish Communities of Prussia: Wreschen/Wrzesnia
    Jewish Communities of Prussia: Wreschen/Wrzesnia (10)
    When our ancestors lived there, Wreschen was a town in the Posen province of Prussia. Today the town is known as Wrzesnia, Poland. According to Wikipedia, Wrze?nia's had a large Jewish community which is mentioned as one of the congregations which suffered severely during the persecutions of the years 1648–1651. All the early documents were destroyed in the conflagration of 1873, in which the synagogue, an old wooden building, also was burned. From International Jewish Cemetery Project (International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies),
    Jewish settlement in Wrzesnia began in the 16th century because in 1579 75 Jews paid tax. Czarniecki soldiers murdered about 100 Jewish families in 1656. A fire in 1873 burned the synagogue. Jewish population: 1905-490 and 1921-151, 2.3%. On September 10, 1939 Germans occupied the city. They destroyed the synagogue in 1940. A French POW camp was there during WWII. The first Jewish cemetery in Wrzesnia was in the 16th century. Another was established in 1868. The only trace is two gravestone fragments stored in the Museum of Children Wrzesnia.
    An old Jewish cemetery was located in the center of the city bordered by the Fabryczna, Staszica and Szkolna Streets. It occupied an area of 94.5 acres. At the end of 1924, an agreement was reached between officials and the Jewish community to exchange the old cemetery for a parcel of land located on Strzalkowska highway at E end of town, the present location of the Municipal Cleaning Authority. The Nazis leveled it using the tombstones for hardening the surfaces of roads and streets. A small fraction of archival books may be found in the State Archives in Poznan.
