I've been associated with this site since its inception. Although I do not visit as much as I used to. I do check in from time to time. I still live here in The Bronx. I think everyone everywhere is nostalgic about the place they grew up in. For baby boomers, and their parents generation that grew up in The Bronx, have seen many changes. You had a vibrant borough with schools housing and shopping. Parks (the most of all NYC boroughs) beaches and many ethnically influenced neighborhoods. In the 50's, things were great so I am told. In the 60's the place went hell in a hand basket. By the 1970's The Bronx was a burned out shell of its former self. for most of us who watched The Bronx fall apart, we longed for the more innocent times of our youth. in the early days of The Bronx Board, what happened and why was highly debated. I had my opinions, I also learned a lot. Remarkably most of the people on the board then shared experiences. we all had a Gormans Hot Dog. We loved this place. We had so many friends, still do.
