About Me
earlyvin

Most of my early memories are from 4th Street in Brooklyn.
4thst


I was born in Brooklyn. We moved for a short time to Tacoma, Washington. Then the whole family moved back to the East Coast, staying with my father's mother, for a short time, in the southern New Jersey town of Wildwood, then on to Windsor Place in Brooklyn.

The photo below shows us crossing the Rockies, then me in the snow in Wildwood.

  When I was young I wanted a Red Ryder BB-gun, just like in the movie "A Christmas Story." Mom wouldn't hear of it, but Dad got it for me anyway. I did not shoot my eye out!

  Eventually (1982?) we moved to Stapleton on Staten Island (right).
Then I met Judy Gobler and got married; Anita and Danny.

Having and raising kids is one of the underrated joys of living on this planet.
