PETER SINNOTT - A lifelong resident of The Bronx, and connected with the heating industry there, ever since
he left school as a boy, Mr. Sinnott has been in business for himself for a considerable period of time as a successful
heating contractor, being located since 1923 in a building erected by himself at No. 621 Tiffany Street, The Bronx.
He was born in The Bronx, August 1, 1882, a son of Joseph and Margaret Sinnott. His father was a native of Ireland,
but came to this country at the age of forty years and was a successful contractor to the time of his death in
1897, being survived by his son and by his wife who died in 1918.
Peter Sinnott was educated in the public schools of The Bronx, attending both Schools Nos. 61 and 10, the latter
at Eagle Avenue and One Hundred and Sixty third Street. After leaving school he was apprenticed to a heating contractor
where he learned the business in all its branches in the most thorough manner, and finally established himself
in business under his own name in which he has continued since then with ever increasing success. He is a general
heating contractor, furnishing heating equipment for all types of buildings and for all kinds of purposes. He is
a member of Bronx Lodge, No. 871, Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks; the Inights of Columbus; The Bronx Board
of Trade; the National Association of Heating and Piping Contractors; and the Schnorer Club. In politics he is
a supporter of the Democratic party and as such a member of the Star Democratic Club, while his religious affiliations
are with the Roman Catholic church, and more particularly with St. John Chrysostom's Church, East One Hundred and
Sixty seventh Street and He Avenue, The Bronx.
Mr. Sinnott married, in The Bronx, June 19, 1910, Anna Gorey, of The Bronx. They are the parents of four children:
1. Peter, Jr. horn in April, 1911. 2. Margaret, born in July, 1913. 3. Joseph, born August 3, 1915. 4. William,
born March 25, 1922. The family residence is located at No. 236 Bowne Street, City Island, The Bronx.
