The partners continued in trade during and after the Civil War, but the nature of their business changed drastically. Warren established The Gutta Percha & Rubber Manufacturing Company and Amedee became its director and afterward its president. Deeply invested in the new business, Amedee invented the rubber hose and was awarded the patent for it in 1886. Fastidious in instilling the art of business into his family, his eldest son joined him in the rubber business while Alfred, his third son, invested in a bronze and brass works with a partner, Paul E. Cabaret. For years he produced doors, gates and other designs for anything a customer could dream up. But similar to his father, his life was about to change. For a period of time, the Spadone family left living in New Jersey to take up residence at 9 West 82nd Street's townhouse, and this is when life began to change for Alfred Spadone.
