Here are some of the details that I was able to decipher:

Joseph Shapiro death certificate and report of the Medical Examiner from the City of New York:

death was an accident; it happened on ......(?) highway; struck by ...(?) auto; nature of injury was skull fracture.

His son, Elias Shapiro, gives the funeral director , A. Gutterman (best guess of name?) permission for undertaking funeral services.

I would suggest searching online or looking through old phone directories for lists of funeral directors of that time. They might still be in operation today. Try searching on New York City maps for highway names.

Hope all this helps.
