SAM M. WALDSTEIN - Engaged for some fifteen years in the real estate and building business, Mr. Waldstein, in
recent years, has been located at No. 51 East Tremont Avenue, The Bronx, where he maintains offices as treasurer
of the Waldorf Realty Corporation, president of the Morris Avenue Realty Corporation and treasurer of the Sherave
Realty Corporation. He has been very successful and has carried through many large and important real estate deals
and building operations, and his share in the development and building up of The Bronx has been as much a proof
of his sound business judgment as of his good citizenship. He was born in New York City, July 9, 1885, a son of
Morris and Ray Waldstein. His father was a native of Austria, but had come to this country as a young man and for
many years was associated with the American News Company. He died about 1916, having been pre deceased by his wife
Sam M. Waldstein was educated in the public schools of New York City, attending Public School No. 77. He went to
work as a boy, but continued his education by attending the night courses offered by the Young Men's Hebrew Association.
He then engaged for a number of years in the stock brokerage business as a curb broker in the old curb market in
Wall Street. About 1910, he established himself in the real estate and building business, which in recent years
has assumed such proportions that he found it desirable to incorporate his various interests in several corporations,
of all of which he is an executive officer. His most recent building operations, to be finished in the spring of
1926, were the erection of two five story and basement apartment houses, each on a plot of 100 by 95, at Nos. 2246
and 2256 Walton Avenue, The Bronx. He is a member of Progress Lodge, No. 1041, Free and Accepted Masons; the Lions
Club; and the Building Industry League, in which latter he is a member of the grievance committee. He is also a
very liberal contributor to many charitable organizations, irrespective of creed or race. In politics, he is a
supporter of the Democratic party, and as such a member of the North End Democratic Club.
Mr. Watdstein married, in The Bronx, February 22, 1922, M. Mabel Magnus, a daughter of Max and Annie Magnus, the
former a jeweler of New York City. Mr. and Mrs. Waldstein are the parents of one daughter, Hope Bachelle, born
July 1, 1924. The family residence is located at No. 2470 University Avenue, The Bronx.
