I could call this “something different 50” . . . but recognize the name?

The place looks mysterious in some places, and forbidding, given that those factories are vacant.

That house along the water looks quite good from this angle given that it dates from before the US Revolution.

Place the name Danielovitch?  Certainly the photo below locates this town as along the Erie Canal, given the tug colors.

 

Here’s another clue to the river town.

This Staten Island tugboat is pushing the “glass barge” through the Mohawk River town . . . so that means that photo was taken in 2018.

Lock E-11 . . .

and above it . . .  Issur, whose parents were Jewish immigrants from Belarus, also went by Izzy Demsky, born 1916.  Maybe that helps?

Ready or not, I need to give it away.

The photos by WVD all show Amsterdam NY, and Issur aka Izzy later went by the name Kirk Douglas.  His first home was on the other side of the now disused leather goods factory buildings in the second photo.

That pre-US Revolution house is called Guy Park Manor, and here’s the story.
