I grew up in “Da Bronx.” living on 219th Street & Bronx Blvd. from ’65 to ’79. My entire family is from the Bronx and it was a great place to be back then. Now? I’m not too sure.
In the 70’s, I got involved in an extracurricular activity known as “graffiti” and made a name for myself writing “Teako-170.” I look back now and didn’t realize all the crazy things we did as kids but we all turned out all right (or least most of us).
I picked up a very interesting book for my mother a few years back for Christmas. It’s called “The Beautiful Bronx: 1920-1950.” (You can pick it up at amazon.com) Loads of great pictures! Check it out.
If anyone went to St. Mary’s (225th Street) or is from my area (or even if you’re not), stop on by my website and drop me a line.
