Guiseppe Nacca

Here's Andy DeSimone's grandfather, Guiseppe Nacca from the 1920 census. The family lived in Carroll Gardens at 27 Cheever Place. The whole block was Italian except for the Fitzgerald's. Guiseppe was a longshoreman and just about everyone
on the block depended on the neighboring docks (about 6 blocks away) for employment. Here's a link to a previous post about Eli Wallach, a Jew who grew up just a short walk away at 166 Union Street.
