Yes, I know the Farenga Bros. Funeral Homes very well. The business was started by my grandfather Vincenzo's cousin Salvatore Farenga in the early 1910s. Sal was born in Muro but emigrated to NY as a kid. Trained as a carpenter, he found work building caskets. At the age of 14 he was the youngest person in NY State to receive a mortician's license. The business was located on 116th St. in East Harlem, then opened a branch on Allerton Ave. in the Bronx. Sal's sons Felix and Pat (Pasquale) took over, and in recent years Pat's nephew has been in charge. The funerals and burials of my grandparents, parents, and many other relatives have all been arranged by Farenga Bros.
