Man Ray was born here.


Man Ray was born here.

Famed Dada artist Man Ray was born here as Emmanuel Raditsky on August 27, 1890. See https://www.newspapers.com/image/177520019/. It is hard to figure out where this might be exactly with modern reference points. He first painted here at age 5, before moving to Brooklyn at age 7, and his home here was described as a two-family house at the end of a quiet dead-end alley.
