Hi, John!

My very first Bronx home, from birth until age two, was located on Monticello Avenue, one block west of Seton Avenue and only a half block up the hill from East 233rd Street and Seton Falls Park. My grandparents and other relatives continued to live on Monticello Avenue after I moved to Cruger Avenue, and I had many visits with them, including going to Seton Falls Park, during my early childhood years of the 1940s. That neighborhood, Edenwald, immediately north of East 233rd Street still has a "country feel" and there are no big apartment buildings to be found anywhere among the many old and newer private homes.

Although the the park in the photo is not Seton Falls Park, there may be others who post on this Board who are able to share memories of growing up in Edenwald, north of 233rd Street and Seton Falls Park. Thanks, John, for bringing back wonderful memories for me just by posting your guess of Seton Falls Park!

Best regards,
Sammy
