Who Was Alfred Z. Solomon?
Alfred Z. Solomon was the founder of “Madcaps,” a hat company in the garment district of Manhattan. He spent much time in upstate New York in pursuing his passion for horses and horse racing. Mr. Solomon purchased a 286-acre farm outside of Gansevoort NY, which he named “Madcaps Farm,” and he became known as the “Duke of Gansevoort.” He lived to be 104 years old and left behind a foundation dedicated to improving the lives of people in upstate New York. Our veterans program is possible thanks to the generous funding received from the Alfred Z. Solomon Foundation and named the veterans program after him in his honor and appreciation.
