I want to thank Mike Colorando for speaking about Monk Mildly, Because those of you who really knew him. Knew that he didn't need a wepon to fight He was in the Golden Gloves but quit cause he was told how to fight. I also know the other side of him if you needed help he was right there.Frankie and Chris had passed along with their sister Sherry.. By the way Jerry Angonie is still alive.What about all the dances in 19 th street park and Immaculata High school.Swimming in the East River.On Fridays they had the splash party's in the Boys Club,Girls were allowed then. If Monk and Bubby did take a bike , why didn't you go to their house and get it.Yes my brother Billy Caroccio did die in a elevator accident. He was jumping from one to another . He got squished. The papers said that he was playing Chicken in a coop. Monk died on Holloween,Bubby on Easter, Ruthies birthday was Christmas Eve,Robert Valentines , Vicky (my mom) May 9th . So now there is Gracie Sissy and Phyllis.There was a reason for people calling us hippies, and it wasn't because we burn't our bras .As far as those DA's believe it or not all the old timers felt safe with them around. The PR black Cats were comming around then. Were they foggoten?? I remember Strobles,2nd ave . Joe Hugs 3rd ave .My grandmother lived in the same building as Nugent and Radack. Grand Union once on the corner of 27th and third. I remember a lot of you guys and then I don't remember some. but I do like the time we had a holloween party by the tunnel in a broking down building.A lot of us guys from Strauss , a dummy was made so well that when the cops came to chase us out ,He pulled a gun on it because it wouldn't leave.I laughed so hard that I got busted .What about the pool on 25th street We used to sneak in at night when it was closed.I remember baton twirling, Cathy Girody, tought us for the Parades.I have been in Queens now for going on 16 years. But I will always have nice funny and fond memories ot The Area that the 29th street Boy's Club was in
I WANT TO SAY HI TO ALL WHO KNOW ME > and I WANT TO WISH ALL OF YOU A HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND A MERRY NEW YEAR.
