Not sure who he is, but the era is sometime between 1924-1927 and he is standing in front of the building located in Southaven - Brookhaven that would eventually become a landmark roadhouse and play a major part in the Knapp story. Typical of the many eateries along Montauk Highway in the 20's. During the 1930's, the building was either replaced or expanded upon and became a brauhaus run by a guy named Howie. In the 1950's & 60's it was known as Sue's Haven Lounge. The major part of the Knapp story was that Marion Murdock was living in an upstairs apartment here when she met Dodi Knapp about 1935.
