Yes, John, I know that the ballroom dancing scene in the movie, "Marty" took place in the "Starlight Ballroom" next door to the RKO Chester on Boston Road, around the corner from West Farms Square. I have been to West Farms quite often, especially when I took the Q44 bus to and from Queens (I moved from The Bronx to Flushing in 1955). Our next door neighbor, whose two-family house was attached to our two-family house on Cruger Avenue, was the proprietor of the well-known Bronx photography studios on West Farms Square... Chester Studios! Do you remember that place? My neighbor became the official photographer for the New York City Public Schools, especially those in The Bronx. In fact, I could never forget the name of his dog..."CHESTER"!!!

Stay safe and healthy!
