Henry Bruckner (1871-1942), United States Congressman and long-time Bronx Borough President, was born in the Bronx on June 17, 1871. He attended public schools, and at age 19, took a job designing silver for the Gorham Manufacturing Company in Providence, Rhode Island. Bruckner embarked on a business venture with his brother when he returned to the Bronx in 1892. Together they founded Bruckner Beverages, which would soon be the city’s largest soda water bottler, located on 410 East 161st Street.
