What you may not know about Elena Kagan is that when she lived at 320 West End Avenue, current and former tenants were Ted Weiss, Jerry Goldfeder, Al Handell, Ann O'Shea, Jerry Koenig, and Mary Geissman, P.R.I.D. members who probably "worked her over" (along with her parents) to shape her liberal views. [Wouldn't that group (Weiss, Goldfeder, Handell, O'Shea, Koening, Geissman, and Elena, Bob, & Gloria Kagan) make a great Supreme Court!] And Felix Frankfurter once lived across the street at 325 W.E.A.
