Thanks, Matty; I found a photo of our home, which I lived in at 793 Westminster Road; the photo was taken in 1940. We bought that house in 1949 for $17,000. I checked the valuation of that house today, and it is astounding what NYC appaised that house for. I wish that I had held onto that house. The major difference between the 1940 photo was when we lived there, was that a brick stoop was installed, to replace the wooden one. Also, iron railings were installed in the 1950's. Thanks again for the memories, as they were very much appreciated!
