From before I left Brooklyn in 1962, in my quite respectable apartment building we had a doorman. As a number of working husbands left to go to work, they would give their bet money to the doorman. The doorman, in turn, would then give it to the United Parcel Service (UPS) driver. He, in turn, would make his drop to the local bookie. it was one of those techically illegal things that was looked upon as a convenience to those who wanted to make a bet on the "daily handle," or whatever.
