excerpt from Christopher Gray, “Streetscapes” Columnist, Sunday Real Estate Section, The New York Times
“In 1908 Gracehull Realty, of which J. Charles Weschler cq was the president, bought a plot between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue on the north side of Cathedral Parkway, as 110th Street is known in that section. He hired the architects Waid & Willauer and, instead of the 12 story buildings going up elsewhere on the street, he had them experiment with a more distinctive, lower building – only nine stories, sacrificing revenue for architectural effect.”
For 62 years Mr. Weschler was a practicing realty attorney in New York City.
He was a member of the New York Bar Assn.
With his former partner, Walter T. Kohn, he had won a claim against the German Government before the Mixed Claims Commission
for the sinking of the Briardeen in World War I.
Mr. Weschler traveled extensively for pleasure — his grandson Bob, as a teen, often accompanied him.
J. Charles Weschler died of a heart ailment on 8 Apr. 1959 in Alexian Brothers Hospital, Elizabeth.
Hulda Eva Mayer was born 17 June 1882 in Jersey City, NJ. daughter of Solomon Mayer and Sophia Mayer.
She died of a heart attack 17 Sept 1931 in New York City.
Both are entombed in family mausoleum, Mt. Nebo, Queens, NY.
