However the NY Times reports that the now 91-year-old, who spent 19 years behind bars and now lives in the Bronx, said "the sketches and other information on the bomb that were passed along to Julius Rosenberg were of little value to the Soviets," in fact, he called it "junk." When the paper asked him if he was a spy, he declared, “Yeah, yeah, yeah, call it that. I never thought of it as that in those terms.” He also noted that "Ethel Rosenberg was aware of her husband’s espionage, but did not actively participate."
