"Jerry", as he was known, was a traveling auditor who made the rounds to all the NYC automats. He worked from 3pm to midnite, but was frequently there til the wee hours balancing out the cashiers who had made a mistake with their accounting. He was employed there from the late 30's til about 1964, when they went under. His boss was Mr. McKenna. He worked with Harrison Sterling, Bettylou Hurley, Joe Meyerjewski, (the names are phonetic so not spelled correctly). My MOM, Natalie, worked there also, as a cashier pt-time in the Macy's store on 34th st and 8th. I began to work there summer's at 14 yrs old (yes I had working papers) at the Trinity Place location as a busboy/dishwasher in 1960. Then, a few summers later, he trained me to be a cashier and I worked all over NYC. He taught me the subway. How to get wherever I wanted without going out of the subway, mostly. I worked 106, 1557, Columbus Circle, 57th, 250, across fm Grand Central, 42nd and 2nd maybe, Madison Ave, 14th st, 8th st (where I got held up), Central Park, near the Playboy Club, 8th and 33rd, does anyone remember Mr. Moscowitz?? not an employee but just hung out at 1557 all the time, VERY well dressed. I'll add more as I remember.
