Jews located all up and down Washington Street, and then Fair Street, some of them, and Capitol Avenue...The interesting part about it is that on Yom Tovim [holidays] on the way to shul [synagogue], we would go from Shearith Israel to Ahavath Achim to Anshi S'fard, that is as children, and we always had a glorious parade going up and down on Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashana. —David Alterman, 1989.
