Hi Walter
In 1957 I started my career as a messenger for a company at 195 Broadway. One day after I delivered a message to a person at 95 Broadway down by Wall Street I realized I was running late and began to run. It was very cold and as I was passing Chock Full of Nuts ran into what felt like a stone wall and fell back on my butt. Just then a huge figure bent over and lifted me up and it was Jackie Robinson believe me I was shocked. That was 63 years ago but your message reminded me of that happening. I believe Jackie Robinson was an executive with Chock Full of Nuts. Had not thought about that event for years till I saw your message.
