On my Cruger Avenue block in the Allerton Avenue/White Plains Road neighborhood, we always called (and pronounced) the game "HIGHngo Seek", never "Hide and Seek"! The "go" comes from "Hide and GO Seek" which was most likely the game`s original full name. The letter "n" would come from the "n" in "and". I always remember the kids in my neighborhood saying "Let`s play HIGHngo Seek". Does anyone else out there remember calling it "HIGHngo Seek"? If so, in which Bronx neighborhood?
