Hello Everyone, I've Been Living Here For Almost 8 Years! I Love This Neighborhood, The Parks And The Ocean And Especially I Love The People. You Know? There Is One Thing That I Have A Hard Time Finding Here Though Hehe, An Organic Food Store. People Are Starting To Be More Health Conscious Nowadays And I Really Think We Need An Organic Supermarket, I Know We Have Quite A Lot! But It Would Be Nice For One To Be Strictly Organic. Instead I Have To Travel To One On Cortelyou Road, Far =\ Anyway, Sending Lots Of Love!

Hello Good People Of Bay Ridge. I Just Turned 65 2 Weeks Ago & I Cannot Believe Where All The Years Have Gone. Went To PS 140 until 5th Grade Then To 118 The Annex On 59 Th & 4 Ave. I Remember When Father Murphy Used To Come @ 2 Pm On Wed to March Us Up To Religious Instructions. I Played The Drums In The Fife & Drum Corp For The Girls. There Were A Few Girls I Remember. Gali sisters Pilar & Geanie. They Went To Ps 118 Annex Also We All Moved. My Mother Took My Family Out To 87 St. Not A House On The Block. All Buick Repair Shops & The Back Of Centry 21. I Was 14 At The Time & Went To Ft Ham High. Had To Drop Out. I Did Not Fit And Went On To Night School. Worked For Pres. Nixon For 7 1/2 Years. Married & 2 Beautiful Children. Bay Ridge Had Great Times. Fred, Babe, Micky Couddy (Geri Korn, Helen, Johnny, Louie. So Many All Hung Out 4 Ave & 59 St. God Bless The Parents Who Watched Out For Us. My Mother Always Had Her Head Out The Window. There Is One Girl I Miss The Most, Debby Vailes. She Is African American. Wherever You Are I Always Have You In My Prayers, Lost Touch With Everyone, But Had Great Time As A Kid. Ring Ring, Jump Rope, Dbl Dutch, Hot Beans. Then They Tore Down All Our Lives With The Bridge. Good Bye & God Bless All Of You My Friends.
