Although I went back a few times when I was living in Brooklyn, much had remained the same and it was
comfortable...lots of families making their own memories just as we did.....BUT

My heart sank when they tore down our building to build a school...not only my building (which actually
consisted of two attached buildings) on West Tremont & Davidson Avenue, but around the corner they
made Davidson Avenue disappear...blocked it with the building of the school.

Like someone who knew every nook and cranny of the apartment he grew up in, I knew every nook and cranny of where I lived....even a alleyway leading to the back of the building where we often played.
