Strangely, I was sad to leave my dingy 4th floor walkup roach-infested apartment when we left the Bronx in 1962. I was 10 years old. I was also very apprehensive about changing schools. We moved in the summer, so I started 6th grade in a new school in Yorktown Heights. I can't say I missed PS 64, except for a few friends. But the Bronx more or less faded from my mind and my life in about 2 weeks. Only now so many years later do I think about the old neighborhood with some fondness.
