I thought I would share some more about Great Uncle Max, who was one of many Max Goldsteins in New York City.
It appears that he followed an uncle, Morris Moskowitz, to America. I believe that the Max Goldstein listed in the household of Morris Moskowitz in the 1910 U.S. Census (below) is Morris Goldstein's brother. Morris Moskowitz is the brother of Max's mother, Sarah.

However, the 1915 New York State Census indicates that Max arrived in 1895 and was already a citizen by the time of this census. His household included wife, Lottie, son Joseph, and next door is the family of Leon Rosen, who is Lottie's father.

The 1920 U.S. Census, which is a bit difficult to read, indicates that he arrived in 1898 and naturalized in 1919. His household now included Edith Goldstein, age 2 7/12. They still live in the same building as Lottie's parents.
