As the 1940s end, the Second World War is over, the troops are coming home, and Harry Truman is our president. The State of Israel has been established and the flames of war are again being fanned in Korea.  In his soon to be released book, The Mayor of Jackson Heights: Growing up Jewish in New York in the 1950s, Cary Silverstein travels back to New York City during this decade of rapid change. Through Cary’s childhood and adolescent eyes, you will experience what it was like growing up as a young Jewish man in the mainly white Protestant and Catholic neighborhood of Jackson Heights, Queens. As the youngest son of first generation American parents, Cary shares his experiences with his mother, father, brother, immigrant grandparents, extended family and friends.
