Don't worry about rambling on Bobby..I like to hear about the old neighborhood..The greenhouse you mentioned was always a target for rocks or snowballs..I think it was a greenhouse for the florist on the corner (Roethke's I think it was called)..The florist was where the school bus picked us up in the mornings to take us to Holy Cross .We always played in the "box room" (King Kullens cardboard room) next to the florist...Across from that corner was a lot where we also played ball next to Regan's tombstones..The Leone's lived in the same building we lived..Their apartment was across the hall from us..Ruth Ann Barbella was in my class at Holy Cross...I also remember Benny the fisherman with his horse around Beverly..Duggan's bar next to Ernie's..So many good memories growing up in that neighborhood..Thanks for the posts...Kevin
