Orinally from Ridgewood, Himrod Street off of Bushwick Ave. Moved to East New York the Cypress Hills projects when they opened in 58. Lived there till 69 when drafted. Went to St. Fortunata Elem & dropped out of East New York high school. Loved hearing about all the games we used to played punchball, boxes, shelly, kick the can & the like. How about the “parkies” or housing cops giving out 5 dollar fines to your parents because you were on the grass.
