Julius Rothstein is one of Utica's progressive realtors and by close application and wise management has won success in a business that has a direct and distinct bearing upon civic growth and development. He is one of the city's loyal sons and was born February 27, 1877. His parents, David E. and Sarah Rothstein, were highly esteemed residents of Utica and the father was numbered among the city's prominent real estate operators.

Julius Rothstein was educated in the Utica Free Academy and when twenty-one years of age established a business of his own, opening a store in Cape Vincent, New York, which he conducted from 1898 until 1902. He next turned to motion pictures and from 1903 until 1905 operated theaters in Watertown, Rome and Oswego. He then returned to Utica and has since engaged in the real estate business. He is the founder of the Mayro Realty Corporation, which was incorporated April 10, 1914, and acts as its president. The other officers are: J. F. Maynard, Jr., vice president; and A. B. Maynard, secretary and treasurer. The name of Maynard is well and favorably known in Utica and the corporation was named in honor of the family. The firm built the Mayro building, an imposing structure of twenty-two stores, and the largest office building in Utica. Under the able management of Mr. Rothstein and his associates the business has prospered and many important transfers of property have been consummated. Mr. Rothstein has also found other outlets for his business sagacity and enterprise and is a director of the Oneida County Trust Company, the National Automotive, Teller & Ceilite Corporations, and the Robbins Enterprises, Incorporated, all of which have benefited by his cooperation and experience.

On December 9, 1914, Mr. Rothstein was married to Miss Etta Solomon, a daughter of E. J. Solomon, a prominent resident of Rochester. Mr. Rothstein is a republican in his political views and works for the success of the party but has never sought public office. He is a supporter of all worthy public projects and takes a keen interest in organizations of a philanthropic nature, to which he contributes liberally of his time and means. He is a director in the Oneida County Tuberculosis Society and is also active in the community chest drive. He is a Rotarian, a Mason, an Odd Fellow and an Elk, and also belongs to the City Club and the Utica Golf & Country Club. His ideals of life are high and he utilizes every opportunity that enables him to climb to their level.
