Back around 1963 I delivered the Bronx Home News to people who lived on Claflin
Ave, Webb Ave, Reservoir Ave and some other streets in that area. I was told I had the largest route in that area. I was hired by, I believe Mr. Martin Kennelly
whose office was on 231st Street. Back then we picked up our papers in the garage on again I believe Strong Street under the building above. I believe it was filled with cars of the people who lived the building above, Sometimes the people who lived above would leave their cars lined up inside the garage in all different places and when the owner of the garage came in, he would place the cars properly in the garage. Well, the fellow who a guy named Joe McCarthy also 13 like me decided to park the cars. I watch in awe as he crashed about a dozen cars and severely did extensive damage to them. The garage owner came in a saw the mess and immediately had us both fired on the spot. The garage owner immediately had us fired on the spot. He tried to punish us and was told by authorities that he could not do anything because he could not leave underage children in charge of a garage.
