Yes, Happy...I KNOW where Giles Place is! My wife grew up on Giles Place in the Sholem Aleichem Apartments during the 1940s, 50s and early 60s. We married in 1965, and our first home, as newlyweds, was in a high-rise apartment building, Orloff Towers, on Bailey Avenue, down the hill from Giles Place. We continued to live there for the next four years until after the birth of our son when we moved to Long Island.

The Giles Place/ Sedgwick Avenue/ Jerome Park Reservoir neighborhood in the West Bronx was COMPLETELY unknown to me during my growing up years in my Allerton/White Plains Road neighborhood in the East Bronx. (My wife and I met in Manhattan, but she "brought" me back to The Bronx!).
