My parents grew up in Manhattan. Mom lived on East 98th Street until she was 14 years old when she and her family moved to The Bronx on Freeman Street in 1919. Dad grew up in East Harlem, in at least three different locations, until he was 13 years old when he and his family moved to The Bronx on Beck Street in 1915. His next home was on Longwood Avenue in 1921 and then on Freeman Street in 1923 where he met my Mom who lived on the same block as his house, just two houses apart! They were neighbors and fell in love almost immediately (Dad was 21 and Mom was 18). They became engaged in 1925 and got married 91 years ago TODAY (on January 22, 1928). Their wedding took place in The Bronx at the Chateau DeLuxe on Prospect Avenue.
