Farewell Carl Reiner Return to topicsPost to this topic

Not only was he from the Bronx, but he continued to live there while working in NY. Had an apartment at the north end of the Concourse by Mosholu Pkwy. Son Rob lived on one side of Mosholu and future wife Penny Marshall lived on the other side.

About 15 years ago, Carl Reiner was the keynote speaker for the Jewish Federation in Los Gatos Ca. When he announced that he graduated from Evander, I jumped up to share so was I! After the event, he came up to me and sang very loud, the Evander School song.

Great story, Irene. Are you still in or near Los Gatos? I’m in San Jose. Once lived in walking distance of Evander although I didn’t go there.

Yes-near sj. 41 years. I was embarrassed to share with Carl Reiner that I didn't even know Evander had a song.My time there was very different than his.

Yeah it’s news to me too that high schools had songs. My mother went to Evander a few years before Carl. I went to Clinton, class of ‘68. Been in SJ for more than 30 years. I don’t come across too many Bronxites locally. If you’d like to chat further, feel free to email me at
