I grew up in Hell’s Kitchen. There would be a bunch of us (boys and girls)We were about 14 and 15 yrs old and I can remember that our parents would give us maybe $2.00 to go to the movies on the weekend (and not every weekend) We would go to the movies on 42nd St. Back then it was about .75 and back then 42nd St. had lots of arcades and I remember a freak show with a bearded lady and a two headed sheep. We were a roudy bunch, laughing and having a god time but all in good fun…Although times were often tuff, I remember those days with a smile!!!!
