Now this is odd. I also lived at 1595 Met - from 1942 on. But I don't remember a Phil Cioffari! Some of the kids in that building were Larry Clinton, Kenny Maula, Joe Diodati, Brian McGurn, to name a few. You must have known Dominick Cafaro (sounds like your name) who was the Parkchester Rec guy and whose son Jimmy was a close friend of mine. They lived in a terrace apartment over by the big playground.

The Brandos (named after Marlon) were an older crowd and I remember one guy (name withheld) who achieved fame by driving around the Oval 500 times in a row without stopping. Or so the story went. This guy later chopped off his big toe to get out of the Navy. Another story?

9 Oval - I think Elaine Fox lived in that building. St. Helena's girl who married Eddie Scott.

What years did you live at 1595?
