Reice Hamel Jr. on Tower 1 World Trade Center NYC 1980

In this image I was 14yrs old coming back from Europe. My mother and I went on the World Trade Center Tour in New York. This was the first time back in NYC since 1969. The Jewish side of my family settled in the Lower East Side in the early 1900s. My father, Reice Hamel Sr. was very much a part of the history of New York City.

He pioneered the Audio/Recording Industry in America. Barbra Streisand “ A Happening In Central Park“ and Many Recordings @ the Village Gate were preserved on tape by him. I was very glad to be back in America since I spent 3 months in Europe. I had a new outlook on why it was great to be an American. „To my Family and America do not ever forget why God has blessed this country“

“And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
Genesis 12:3
