My best friend, Ann Hoffman lived on Longfellow/Westchester Avenues and I lived on Westchester/Bryant Aves. We met in kindergarten, PS 75, and have remained close friends up to this day. When we were in our first two years of James Monroe HS, I moved to Flushing and 6 months later, so did she. We have gone through growing up in the Bronx, to our marriages in Flushing, with the trials and tribulations of raising children, and divorce. She resides in Florida now, and I in Penna. We are still in touch, still laugh and cry about our growing years.
