Peter A. Frasse Co.
Peter A. Frasse Co.
The sign reads "Peter A. Frasse & Company, Steel and Tube." It was on the back of a building at 417-419 Canal Street, on the corner of 6th Ave., Manhattan. I took pictures of this sign in Dec. 2006. The building was demolished the following year. Frasse & Co. were hardware dealers and were located here from 1911 to 1925. The founder was Peter Abraham Frasse (1822-1891). On his death in 1891 the following notice appeared in the New York Times: "Peter Frasse, who died of apoplexy Wednesday at the Adelphi Hotel, Saratoga, was one of the oldest merchants in this city. He had been in poor health for some time. He was seventy years old. Mr. Frasse succeeded his father in the hardware business at 95 Fulton Street started in 1816. Peter was made a partner when he became of age. He ran a factory in the rear of his store, but gave it up a few years ago. His parents lived at 95 Fulton Street. Peter's father was the first importer of watchmakers' tools in America. Robert Fulton, the inventor of the steamboat, was a regular customer of the firm, and many of the tools used in constructing his steamboat came from there. Mr. Frasse leaves a son and three daughters. Until a year ago he lived at 160 West Forty-seventh Street. Then he went to live at the Vendome Hotel." Frasse can be traced through four successive U. S. Census reports from 1850 to 1880. In 1850 his occupation is described as "watch tools" and in 1860 as "watch tool importer." In 1870 this became "retail tool store" and in 1880 "importer of tools." On 7 Nov. 1855 he married Rosetta M. Campbell in New York City. The couple had 5 children, but Peter Frasse Jr. died 8 June 1862 age 2 years, 4 months and 20 days. Peter Frasse's father was Henry Frederic Frasse (1781-1849), born Neufchatel, Switzerland. Listings appear for Henry Frasse in New York city directories from 1809 to 1847. The last was in Doggett's New York Directory 1847-48, which reads: "Frasse Henry F. & Son, watchmakers' tools." The son at this time was William Henry Frasse (1818-1869), an older brother to Peter Frasse. When William H. Frasse's widow, the former Sarah Jane Negus, died, her death notice in the New York Times (10 Jan. 1911, p. 11) read in part, "Mrs. Sarah J. Frasse, 86 years old, died on Sunday night at the home of her son-in-law, John T. Pierson, 19 Hamilton Road, Montclair, of pneumonia. Mrs. Frasse was the widow of William Henry Frasse of New York. She was the daughter-in-law of Henry F. Frasse, a co-worker of Robert Fulton. She traveled extensively, having made forty trips across the continent and some twenty trips to Europe."
The story
The story
In the early 1980s the office of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) launched a project to restore abandoned military housing units at Hamilton to sell to low income families in Marin county. The project succeeded despite heavy opposition from the far more affluent neighboring communities. These couples and families are the lowly wage slaves that the upscale residents of Bel Marin Keys didn't want moving into the area. As anyone can plainly see from their demeanor, these hardened criminals sought nothing short of driving down property values as part of an evil plan to turn all of Ignacio into a slum and haven for hoodlums, drug dealers, prostitutes and thieves. Marin county supervisor Barbara Boxer (now a US senator) attended the ground breaking ceremony at the new Lanham Village to show her support for the project much to the surprise of many of the attendees, who, now, 25 years later still vividly remember her as the primary voice of the political opposition to the development. This scenario is one that has been repeated frequently in Marin over the years as residents have consistently fought against humanitarian efforts to put roofs over people's heads whether in the form of shelters for the homeless or in the form of affordable housing for the poor. Just in the last year, residents of Strawberry Village started an uproar in response to an affordable housing proposal there. The plan was only for about 4 or so units, but neighbors came out in en masse and were broadcast on the evening news voicing concerns about things like the neighborhood's inability to accommodate the increase in car traffic that would result from the new units. It was so depressing to watch the footage, because for them to oppose such a small project as what was on the table for Strawberry Village.......... The residents might just as well have been protesting the first black family to move onto the block. It was that bad. -Ramblings of a bitter ex Marinite. 30th of August, 2007
