Over the years Pollak and Son's had many locations on and around  the Bowery, (at that time the heart of the jewelry trade in New York City. By 1953 Frank Pollak and Son's opened a second store at 8 west 47 Street on the corner of 5th. Avenue. This was becoming the "new" diamond center for the jewelry trade in Manhattan.  In 1962 Tom Murray joined the firm as an expert in antiques and all phases of the jewelry business, Tom retired from the firm in 2007. In 1968 Frank Pollak, the grandson of the founder was brought to work at the family business. In 1974, Beth Watstein joined Frank Pollak and Sons as a renowned  jewelry expert.
