I dont think hirpm got his dates right. I was not a halsey bop, but me and my friends know many Halsey as they would aways help us out if we needed them. and we hung out on central ave.in 60 and 61 and Eldert and Wilson in 61 and 62 and then moved to Knickerbocker ave. in 63 and 64 when I went into the Marine Corps. And I can tell you for sure that the gangs he mentions did not take over that area until much later. it true they tried and they were a tough group, but we always managed with the help of the Halsey tots and bops to keep them at bay I know this for a fact, because I was there,and I also lived on Evergreen ave. till 1962 and I had to go home every day and if they had taken over that area I would not have made it home alive.
