5th_ave_and_52nd_st.jpgMother's birthplace, June 1, 1906. Fifth Ave.
and 52nd Steet, right over the drug store, which back then was also a drug store. This photo taken June 1999.
Definitely not the same ol' place. No...this is not
a third-world country...
it's Brooklyn, N. Y.

522_52nd_st.jpgLived here on the top floor from the early forties to early fifties.
The rent was $38 per month. Great place in those days for a kid growing up. Lots of friends, sports, and things to do. With New York City thirty minutes away on the subway, and only a nickle to get there, I wouldn't swap it for anything. This house sells for 300 grand today.
Unbelievable! This foto taken in June 1999.

Hi Guys,
Great shot Gene. Here's my first-ever girl-friends apartment at 530 52nd St. We were both 12, and went to PS 94. We met at a Holloween Party across the street at Georgy Phlum's house. True love, but not to last, she moved after about a year, and never heard from her again. I was devastated...haven't been the same since. C.

Looking towards Fifth Avenue. Another "Doris" I liked, but couldn't get anywhere with because of her preference for the older boys. lived in the
tan colored building on the third floor. Those pre-teen days were tough on a guy, great for the girls. There was a Chinese laundry, and Japanese restauant on the ground floor of the last building to the right...and a barber shop...almost forgot. Note the chintsey, crapulous street light. There once was an ornate wrought-iron, substantial looking street light in front of my place. Nah...I could never return...too much gone!
These pictures just taken in June of '99 by Gene Sirota while visiting Brooklyn.
