I Am Writing My Family History And Combining Local History Into The Narrative. I Attended PS 204, Dyker Heights JHS201 (1965-68) And New Utrecht HS (1968-1971). Dyker Heights, Bay Ridge, Bensonhurst And Boro Park Were A World Unto Itself. Up Until The 1970s Neighbors Knew Each Other And Stopped To Converse. The Communities Were Stable With Families Livening Here For 2-3 Generations. Sometimes Life Was Constricted, Especially For Teenagers. Everything Moved Slowly And Manhattan Became The Destination Back Then. Now Brooklyn Is Once More A Place Of Choice To Live. I Hope Gentrification Does Not Destroy It. I Hope There Will Be Room For Newcomers And Long Timers. I Love It Here And Will Never Leave.

For Jim Strype - Jerry And Mike Strype Were Close Friend When Growing Up. Gerry Was A Classmate At OLPH, And Mike And I Worked Together At General Motors. In 1975, I Transferred To Detroit And Lost Contact. I Heard Of Jerry And Mike Death But Never Heard Of The Causes. I Found A Post You Wrote And Found That Their Deaths Came From Cancer And A Heart Attack. I Am Not Sure Why, But Knowing The Cause Is A Relief For Me. Best To The Strype Family.

I Just Looked On A Brooklyn Website And Saw That Bay Ridge Methodist Church Was Torn Down. It Broke My Heart To See This. I Knew The Minister There In The 1970s (Bob Meyers) Had Lots Of Friends There, Even Helped With The Youth Group Back Then. So, So Sad. I Guess We Can Never Go Back. Another Bay Ridge Memory Shot To Hell.

Loved Visiting My Grandparents, Uncles, Aunt And Cousins Who Lived On Gelston Ave, I Spent The Night Before My Induction Into The Air Force There And Went Bar Hopping With My Uncle Eddie That Night And Woke Up That Morning To A Boatload Of Snow Which Made A Normal 10 Minute Walk To Fort Hamilton And 45 Minute Nightmare To Go Along With A Hangover. Because Of All That Snow The Induction Ceremony Was Put Off Until Something Like 4PM Waiting For Everyone To Get To The Fort. Feb 2,1976 Will Be A Date I Will Always Remember!!!!
