Many thanks, Diane, for getting back to me (including your response in the "why we left the Bronx" thread above. I am very familiar with the Kew Gardens Hills area of 154th Street and 71st Avenue where you lived. In fact, as you may know, those apartment buildings for electrical union employees were called, appropriately, "Electchester"!

I asked my wife, Isabel Berg (now Schwartz) if she remembers your sister, Barbara Thomas. She doesn`t, but IF Barbara is my age, she would be 83! Isabel went to P.S. 95 and Junior High School 80 during her growing up years on Sedgwick Avenue. She probably would have gone to Walton High School if she had not been accepted to Music and Art High School in Manhattan, (Class of 1957). Diane, during the time when you lived on Webb Avenue and 195th Street in Kingsbridge, I had cousins who lived on the next block, Claflin Avenue, for many years. Their family name was "Barnett".

I ALSO want to wish you and yours, a very healthy, safe and joyous 2023!
