Memories about Stephen Prasky:
Thomas Patrick Norton I (1920- ) said: "He was married before. He worked on the construction of the Empire State Building in 1939, and he had a daughter by a previous marriage, and she was a burlesque stripper, whose stage name was 'Lynn York'. When she would come over the house she would sit on the porch with my brother, Jimmy Norton, and all his friends would pass by the porch to see her. Jimmy took our father to see her show and all he could say was 'she's a strong woman'."
