File Type: imageText: My father Giuseppe Schiro, tavern owner, was known as ?The Goodwill Ambassador,? ?The Mayor of Regent St.,? and ?Father Joe.? Advice and loans were available to those in need. One bitterly cold night I saw a homeless man, Eric, crawling into the back of a truck. I went out to tell him that he would freeze to death. My father and I fixed him a bed near the furnace. Eric stayed and did errands in exchange for a roof over his head. ?Frank J. Schiro
