Reader Shares Photo Believed to be of the Rebbe

CrownHeights.info has received a photograph, believed to have never been seen before and apparently taken right before the Rebbe assumed the Nesius, crossing the street near President Street and New York Avenue.

For a short period the Rebbe and the Rebbetzin lived in an apartment at 346 New York Avenue, an apartment building known as The President Plaza, on the corner of President Street.

Though difficult to see, the reader who submitted the photograph says that it is the Lubavitcher Rebbe crossing the street. “The photographer has shared a small collection of photos, which will be shared soon” he wrote in an email.

    In the article it says that the photo was “apparently taken right before the Rebbe assumed the Nesius”.

    The Rebbe lived there until approximately 5716 (1956).
    The cars look like early/mid 50’s, not late 40’s !

    So it’s most probably from the first years of the nesius.
