    Hello! My name is Taskira, I was doing research on my house in Paterson, NJ. I wanted to know its history when I came upon an article:
    I realized Mrs. Naundorf used to live at my house in 71 Henry St. and got excited and was curious on how it might have looked back in the day, and was hoping to contact her but unfortunately I was too late. My condolence to her family, I wonder if her family may have any pictures of the house from back then still, if you do please share them with me through my email, sorry for the trouble and thank you.
